Back to kindergarten!

Today was my first day helping out in Jamie's kindergarten class. He rode the bus as usual and then I went down at about 9.15am. OMG, the kids were so little and cute! They all said their Pledge of Allegiance, went over what day it is, etc., and then they split into groups and did rotations around the classroom. My little station was an activity for them based on the book "Ten Apples Up On Top", so the kids had to draw themselves, then color and cut out ten apples and paste the apples on their heads. They all did an awesome job! Next we went out for recess and it was great to watch Jamie interacting with all his classmates; he seemed totally at ease. After recess they had a story and worked on their journals, and then all of a sudden it was time for me to go! The morning flew by! It was a busy, busy classroom!
Today's card is made with the Halloween set of stamps from My Favorite Things. It's pretty simple, but I like the effect of the witch popping off the front :) Thanks for stopping by!!
