Posts Tagged ‘first day of school’

The first days of school usually provide time for a few extra read-alouds. Here is a list of books I found to help young kids ease into back to school time. I was cleaning my office yet again this weekend and came across this list I’d tucked away.
 
1. I Am Not Going to School Today! by Robie H. Harris (McElderry, 2003)
2. Imagine Harry by Kate Klise (Harcourt, 2007)
3. It’s Time for School with Tallulah by Nancy Wolff (Scholastic, 2007)
4. Off to Kindergarten by Tony Johnston (Scholastic, 2007)
5. Hamsters, Shells, and Spelling Bees: School Poems edited by Lee Bennett Hopkins (HarperCollins, 2008)
6. Mildred and Sam Go to School by Sharleen Collicott (HarperCollins, 2008)
7. My Kindergarten by Rosemary Wells (Hyperion, 2004)
8. Amelia Bedelia’s First Day of School by Herman Parish and Lynne Avril (Greenwillow Books, 2009)
 
Please post any of your favorite titles for back to school, too!

Jon cooking my belated birthday dinner

Jon cooking my belated birthday dinner

Today is the first day of school for most of the kids around here. I worked with several teacher friends this weekend to look at lesson plans and IEPS for next week. Can’t wait to hear how everyone’s first day of school goes. Even though I no longer have my own class, there are several local classrooms I work in whenever I’m home. Looking forward to going back to see the kids next Monday. Even bought a new “back to school” dress at Anthropologie, one of my favorite stores. Bet you’re busy shopping, planning, and getting ready, too!

 
Hope you plan something fun for the day before you start with your students. Our son, Jon, came over Sunday night and cooked dinner for my belated birthday celebration. Chicken cordon bleu… delicious! Take good care of you and yours as you prepare for school to start. Let us know how your first day of school went!
