a. First day of school jitters are a real issue for everyone. Who would be more nervous than the actual school itself? In this adorable, relatable book, the school itself, Frederick Douglass Elementary, is wondering just how much the children will like it. School’s First Day of School can be read on the first day of school to show students they are not alone in feeling anxious. ( )

This book is a backwards explanation of how the school feels on the first day of school. It tells how the school is also nervous to meet the kids for the first day. This book can be a great tool to use on the first day of school to assure the kids that it is okay to be nervous or scared about the first day of school. ( )

School's First Day of School is a great book about the school's first day of school instead of a students. I like how it switches the perspective and it is from the school's point of view. This is a great book for introducing point of views and to help children feel more comfortable at school or during the first day of school. Recommended for the lower levels of elementary because it is an easy read. The book is also very colorful and humorous which draws the readers attention in. Definitely recommended! ( )

I really enjoyed reading this book. I love how it can really relate to any elementary grade level and potentially middle school level. It can be something that is read on the first day of school to introduce to the students that if they are nervous, it is okay because most people are feeling the same way. The story is about the Fredrick Douglass Elementary School and how he is nervous just like most of the students. The school really has a rough start to the day, but as it goes on things start to look up for him. In the end, he gets better because he soon realizes that he is not the only one with first day jitters. Overall this is a great book because it lets the students know that they are not the only ones feeling that way and in a sense it can potentially calm the students down and hopefully allow them to enjoy their first day of school.

This story is told from the point of view of the school. I think it would be a really cute story to read to kindergartner's first day of school. The school talks about the kind of students he sees and tells stories about them and their teachers. It is a good first person narrative and has a lot of potential for ice breaker activities. It can model what the students day will look like in their school and it can show them that everyone gets nervous. School was anxious for the arrival of all the students and you could relate this to the students being anxious to go to their first day of school. ( )
