#1: Spooky Skeletons Halloween Decoration
One classic Halloween decoration is the skeleton. You can use these to create a spooky scene in your classroom. Hang them from the ceiling, put them in the windows, or even pin them to your classroom door. Your students will love walking into class and seeing all the skeletons!
#2: Creepy Cobwebs Decoration
Cobwebs are another great way to add a touch of Halloween to your classroom. You can buy fake cobwebs at most party stores, or you can make your own with some black string and glue. Then just drape them over furniture, windows, and doorways for an instant creepy effect, making sure to keep them out of reach of young children.
