The first day of school brings excitement, happiness, and jitters to students and grown ups alike! First Day Jitters can be read to students of any grade on the first day of a new school year. Many students can relate to the character in the book on the first day of school.
The book shows that even teachers feel nervous about the first day of school. It can help ease the students' minds. An activity I would do in my classroom would be creating a "On the first of school, I feel" poster and let the students write how they feel. For younger students, they can write their name or stick a picture that represent them on a pre-made chart to show how many students feel the same way they feel.
