I have always loved Halloween.
When I was in school at good old Gatewood Elementary, in West Seattle, we would get dressed up over lunch hour and parade through all the classrooms. The kindergartners would go to the first grade classrooms and parade through, then upstairs to the second grade with the first graders jumping on board behind them. Next, the second graders would attach themselves on to the end of the line and this would continue on through the sixth grade and the third floor. Finally, the little guys would get back to their classroom and sit down, eat their treats and watch the older kiddos march through. Each class while sitting would eat their treats and when the entire school had paraded through it was time to go home.
It wasn't until I was a teacher that I realized the beauty of this plan!
These days the kiddos aren't allowed to dress up at our school. We have a party but no costumes. This weekend I wanted to plan a costume and dress up but it just wasn't fair to the kiddos to have a teacher all dressed up with them in their everyday clothes.
What to do, what to do.....
