So you are the “room-mother/father” in your child’s classroom? Maybe not, perhaps you just want to participate in this year’s classroom Halloween party. Generally this is one party during the year in which a number of parents wish to participate. That’s why it is wise for the teacher to invite interested parents, grandparents, and so forth to meet together to pre-plan this special day.
If you attend such a meeting you will want to go in with some personal suggestions. You might suggest that party invitations be sent home. These invitations can be an art project, created by the student’s, during a classroom activity. Be sure to ask that the invitation be returned along with the number of people who will attend the festivities.
During your meeting you may also wish to discuss music that will be played during the Halloween party. Sounds not normally heard during the year are all perfectly welcome on this day with wild shrieks, deadly noises, and other scary noises. If your team decides on something less dreadful then other songs, such as “Monster Bash” help set the mood for the party.
Decorations are appropriate and plentiful for this special day. The teacher may wish to decorate the room – or, s/he may be delighted at the offer of some help. Most any store carries a variety of commercial decorations that can be used. These include everything from the hanging skeleton to the scary ghosts. Haunted houses, hanging spiders, scarecrows, spider webs all add to the scenery.
There are many other ideas that can be used for Halloween. The key is for your team to work together and determine what will be the best way to express this day to make everyone happy. Your team might want to visit us before your meeting at CarvingForKids for more Halloween ideas.
