Spooky Stories and Haunted Horrors

Kids LOVE Halloween! It's always so fun to celebrate as a teacher, too. I always remember teachers decorating for Halloween, rolling around through the "haunted gym" on those flat roller scooters and bringing Halloween candy for lunch for weeks!

Tales2go has many spooky (and non-spooky!) Halloween audiobooks for kids to get you and your students in the mood. Here are some of the fan favorites:
