The preschool students enjoyed the sheriff department visiting to tell them about Halloween safety and bringing them treat bags. Deputy Walker and Deputy Soper visited the morning class. Sheriff Hanks and a group of soldiers came back with Deputies Walker and Soper in the afternoon class. The children were challenged to eat all the candy before they went home. Some of them did a good job of completing the challenge in the afternoon. They were also challenged to scream as loud as they could. The children were so excited that all these wonderful people took the time to visit their classroom.

We talked about what is real and what is make believe this week. The children decided that monsters aren't real, but they really enjoyed the book, Go Away, Big Green Monster. We used their hand prints to make their own big green monsters. They also got to explore "real" pumpkins. We had some who literally started gagging when their hands touched the pulp. I had to rush one little person away from the table for fear of what might come next. They also got another pumpkin from the FFA group so they were able to decorate it.
