First Days of School Picture Book Linky Party

DeAnne, author of First Grade and Fabulous, is starting a really awesome weekly linky party.  It is for picture books and each week will have a different theme.  Since I can't resist a good linky party, I am going to jump right in.

There are several "go to" books that I use during the first few days of school.  Up first, First Day Jitters.

I love this story because the students think the story is about a kid, but they see at the end it is really about the teacher!

Another book that I LOVE reading during the first few days of school is Chrysanthemum
It does such a nice job of teaching kindness and acceptance.

Head on over and link up!


  1. I love both of those books! :)
