review SPOILER ALERT! 2019-01-25 04:54
First Day Jitters
First Day Jitters - Julie Danneberg,Judy Love

This is the one of the best back to school books there is! The main character of this story is SO nervous for her first day of school. Her dad has to encourage her and help her get to school, despite her many protests. However, the reader gets a BIG surprise when they finds out that the main character is actually the teacher who is so nervous for her first day! This book helps show students that we as teachers are just as nervous for our first day of school as they are for theirs and helps relate everyone in the classroom. A fun activity that you could do with this book, is having everyone write down their feeling about the first day of school on an index card ( or for younger grades pick a word out of pre-made stacks) and creating a class  collage to compare how everyone is feeling. I would then personally have my students do a short writing activity on what they learned from seeing how their classmates felt vs how they felt. Was it the same? Was it different? Did it relieve any anxiety seeing how else the rest of the class felt?

David Goes to School
David Goes To School - David Shannon

David is back but this time causing mischief in the school! Follow David as he gets into trouble at school and his teacher try to teach him the school rules. As any other David book, this will have your students cackling and invested in the story. This a story that is great to start the school year off with. This would be a great story to read to students to spark a class discussion on what we can do in school and what we can't do in school. Then you could have your students create their classroom rules after their discussion (all teacher facilitated of course).

Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes
Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes - Eric Litwin,James Dean

Pete the cat is back again but this time he is rocking in his school shoes. Pete is starting school and is exploring all different places in the school such as his classroom, the library and the playground. This can be extremely nerve wracking but Pete takes it in stride! This is a great back to school book especially for students who are starting school for the first time. A couple activities that you could link to this is having students doing a writing exercise for something that they experienced for the first time at school and how they handled it. Another activity you could do for this book is having all your students create their own school shoes and explaining to their classmates why they decorated them the way they did.
