I love books and First Grade and Fabulous is hosting a picture books for the first week of school party!! There are so many wonderful books out there for those first days of school. Here are some of my favorites!
I just adore this book! Sarah has trouble wanting to go to school. By the end, you learn that Sarah is not a student but the teacher! It leads to a great discussion that even adults get nervous sometimes. Fun book with the surprise!
Another book with a theme/lesson! Pete the Cat teaches that it’s okay no matter what happens. Good time to read and this and talk about how the first days of school can sometimes be tough, but it will be okay in the end!
Another favorite, favorite of mine is Mean Jean!! This is a great book to read and use to launch a talk about recess rules and bullying. It has great words and rhyme that makes it fun to read!
Chrysanthemum has been around a while, but it has stood the test of time. Wonderful book to read and talk about how different our names or other aspects of our friends can be different and be okay with that. It is also good for kindergarten and learning the letters in our names. So many activities can be done with this like counting letters and graphing those letters. Fun times and learning!
Join in the fun and tell us about your favorite books for back to school!
