Halloween was the big event.  For children who are blind, or have limited vision, it can be both a fun and stressful experience. When I was in first grade, we cut out witches, black cats, and bats to hang on the board. Now I had heard of witches, and I knew about cats. The bats we cut out, however, look nothing like the wooden thing I used to hit a baseball. And why oh why would you put a bat in someone’s hair? That would be heavy and awkward. This made Halloween a learning activity, and we all learned about flying mammals.
