Tips for Picking Your Halloween Costume to Wear to School
When selecting a Halloween costume to wear to work as a teacher, keep these tips in mind!
1. Mobility and Comfort
- Opt for a costume that allows you to move around comfortably in the classroom. You'll still need to teach and be able to move around!
- Consider the weather. If it's warm in the classroom, don't choose a costume that is like a warm onesie!
- Keep the cost of your teacher costume in mind, as you don't want to spend too much on a costume that you might only wear for one day.
- Look for creative and cost-effective DIY costume ideas that won't break the bank.
3. Educational Tie-Ins
- If possible, select a costume related to a book or historical figure that you've covered in class.
4. Student-Friendly Choices
- Consider whether your costume will be something your students will recognize and enjoy. If you dress up as a character from before your kids were born, they won't know what you are dressed up as!
- Avoid costumes that might be overly scary too.
- Ensure that your teacher Halloween costume doesn't hinder your ability to move around.
- Avoid costumes with masks or props that could be problematic in a classroom setting.
