At the end of October, people around the world celebrate halloween in one way or another. It is a strange cultural annual celebration which people dress up in various spooky attire and go trick or treating. I remember last year when I was teaching a group of Russian young learners (around Halloween time) and learners completed various activities related to this spooky celebration. Nevertheless, I am writing up some tried and tested lesson ideas, school activities and ideas to decorate the school which you could incorporate inside and outside the classroom (from personal experience) that would work quite well with various age ranges (young learners or adults).

There is a wonderful blog post by Carissa about the use of stories for halloween for young learners (as mentioned in the comments below). I definitely recommend reading this to get more ideas, thank you Carissa: http://eslcarissa.blogspot.mx/2012/09/halloween-readings.html
