I planned this event in place of a pre-k graduation. It was a huge hit! Many families commented that they liked doing this event much better and prefer it to a graduation. I loved that the families were so engaged, even the siblings were doing the activities and helping! I really appreciated how the event was basically all figured out logistically and planned so that I only had to do the prep the stations and figure out the event layout. The only suggestion I would have for Kaplan would be to change the format of the CD. I found that none of the school laptops had a DVD drive nor did my home laptop or my assistant teachers' or the desktop computer at work. I had to borrow a external hard drive to download it which created an extra hurdle, but in the end it was worth it!

A must-have for anyone who organizes a kindergarten transition event!

This product is so practical and easy to use. I receive positive feedback from both parents and teachers each time I use The Spectacular School Race for my school's kindergarten transitioning event. This product provides our families with great tips and suggestions that are easy for parents to practice at home. More importantly, we have fun! This event always makes a great first impression on our new parents and our new students.
