[Squeakland] Preschoolers and programming

Last year, I posted in this list asking for information on usage of
Etoys with preschoolers or kindergartners (thanks Alan, Kim, Blake, Wade,
and Carol Ann for your responses).
This was part of my research on the use of programming with
preschoolers, which is now available on-line at:
Framework for Computer Programming in Preschool and Kindergarten
While there haven't been many reports of Etoys usage with this age
group (and even less last year, when this thesis was submitted), I thought
some of you might find at least part of my research conclusion interesting,
for in several sections of the "Framework" chapter (chapter 7), I provide
Etoys equivalents of the main ideas.

Subject: Squeak Etoys and preschoolers
I'm interested on computer programming experiences with children aged
3, 4 and 5.
I was unable to find documented cases of Etoys use in this age group,
but expect that there should be at least a few user stories.
If anyone has reports, photos, or even just recollections of such
cases, I would love to hear about them!
