I love Teaching French Halloween vocabulary! It’s my favorite holiday, and there are so many ways to have fun in French class during the Halloween season.
Here are some of my favorite ways to bring Halloween into French class.
1. Use a Halloween word wall and have a scavenger hunt in your building.
Yes, word walls are great for using in your own classroom, but have you ever hung them up around the building? If your principal is okay with this, give it a try! Students will love moving around, and it’s a great way to recruit future French students. 🙂
2. Use the vocabulary with fun activities.
These fun activities are great for any Halloween mini-unit. Use them at centers, as homework, or as in-class activities.
3. Listen to Halloween music.
I love listening to music in class, because it’s a great way to help kids retain new vocabulary. Plus, it is just fun! Kids love music, and music helps them remember, so it just makes sense to listen to it as much as possible.
Le Rock de la sorcière
And my son’s favorite :
La chanson des squelettes

4. Play Bingo!
Who doesn’t love bingo? It’s fun for practicing vocabulary, and you can even use it as a party game. Everything you need is here in my Halloween Bingo game. Includes 35 bingo boards, calling cards, and image-based calling cards for younger learners.
5. Write creatively.
Whether you do individual writing, round robin stories, or do a snowball activity, Halloween writing is so much fun!
