Halloween is such a fun time for kids. They have a chance to dress up, to show off their costumes to people, to have some fun. The day can be a little crazy at schools but I have learned to go with the flow and not expect the children to get too much done.
At the school where I work, we have a costume parade: we walk around the field and then around the block in our community. The parents, and those walking the street in our area, get to see the children in their outfits. Monday was a mild, sunny day so passersby were able to see perfectly what the children were wearing. After the parade, I invited my parents back to the room where the children sang for them. Afterwards, while the children were eating their snacks, the parents looked at the children’s portfolios.
This week I am grateful for Halloween. Not only because I had the chance to see all the wonderful costumes, but also because I had a chance to meet parents and connect with them.
