Why reindeer should not go to preschool

Reindeer should not go to preschool…

Because they don’t know how to play…

They are fuzzy and smelly…

And they chew on our clothes…

And are a big distraction all day!

But the most important reason…

Is the mess they make on the floor…

So no matter what the season…

Don’t let a reindeer come in your preschool door!

LOL – we loved having the reindeer come and visit us at preschool today! Thank you Silly Safari for the very special treat!

    How wonderful! I always crave the preschool environment after visiting your site! It’s been 5 years since I worked in the classroom.

      Alison – I know how you feel. Reading the real life stories of others who are in the classroom really motivates me to go into each school and be my very best. I am currently working on a musical at two schools and I am having the best time with the children. It is a remarkable and rewarding time for me:)

    wow- that is so cool! I agree- I would be happy to deal with those negatives about a reindeer visit! How in the world did you find someone to bring in a REINDEER to PRESCHOOL!? 🙂 Too much fun!
