What a great Halloween it was in kindergarten today.

Room moms Sonja, Sherry, and Julie and their many helpers put on the most pleasant and enjoyable classroom party imaginable. The kids has a wonderful time and so did their teacher. One of my kindergarten teacher friends isn't allowed to spend more than 30 minutes on Halloween. What a shame! To deny five year old children the sort of fun we enjoyed today is difficult for me to understand.

Anyway, we had a fantastic time. I think I'll just show you 40 of the photos that were taken on my camera today to try to convey the fun:

This really was such a wonderful a day, we had soo much fun! It would not have been nearly as successful without all the contributions from the parents. A big THANK YOU to everyone that helped!

Happy Halloween!!

Thanks, Sonja. Yes. This was all about the contributions of the parents. I cannot say how happy I am to be given so much support.

hi moms and dads,

Taking into account the fact that this blog post is dedicated to kids so I just would like to ask opinions of child behavior experts what they think about such educational iPhone game as Kinder Hangman – Is this game really so helpful for developing skills of kids? I am a mother myself, so just would like to know if this game can help me repare kids for school? Any ideas?
