First Grade Books for the First Day of School

back to school picture books First Grade

When it comes to the first day of school, many young kids can have some apprehension about starting a new class. The thought of getting a new teacher may be a frightening one. They may worry about fitting in and making friends. There are picture books out there that can alleviate these fears by having relatable characters that are also going to a new class but as each story progresses, the new experiences become familiar and comfortable for both the main character involved and also for the reader. These are my best picks of First Grade back to school picture books that are all about easing the new transition into First Grade.

Happy Father's Day! If you need some good clean jokes, these are some ready to print riddles on bookmarks that are really cute and funny. A dozen in color and the same twelve are also in black and white (for your students to color). Each bookmark has a question on the front and the answer on the back. I have to say that these jokes are all positive and they do not insult dads. Only positive, happy, and silly jokes here 😉. Tassels can be added to make them even cuter!

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
