So, I love picture books and I especially love picture books that serve multiple purposes. Today I’m going to share with you some of my favorite books to use during the first few weeks of school. These books can also be found on my Amazon List – Back to School Books.
First Day of School Books:
I always start the first day of school every year with the book First Day Jitters. It’s a cute book that gets some of those nerves and jitters out of the way. I also like that it shows that teachers are nervous too.
Be Kind Books:
Teaching social skills and life lessons are extremely important during the first week. These books are great for talking about being kind and respectful to one another.
The first few weeks of school are full of learning about classroom expectations and procedures. I love using the books below to discuss some of those topics. These books are also good to bring up throughout the school year if an issue arises.
Growth Mindset is such a valuable skill for kids to learn. I love using these books to talk about it in kid friendly ways. It’s important for kids to know that it’s ok to make mistakes and that they won’t be perfect at everything on the first go – and these books do a great job of explaining that.
Those are some of my favorites. What are your favorite back to school books? Comment below…
