What to Read with Kids on the First Day of School?
We’ve reached that point in the summer where I can’t remember the last time it was cold. It’s a telltale sign that fall is coming and: school.
If you’re a teacher or librarian thinking about what to read as the school year begins, I have a couple sources of possible inspiration.
First up, 5th grade teacher Colby Sharp shares the book he will be reading aloud with his students to begin the year.
Jillian Heise is a K-5 Library/Media Teacher (and #ClassroomBookADay creator) and has a great batch of books well suited to the beginning of the year.
And some random K-3 school librarian in Michigan has also made some posts with books to begin the school year.
