First day back to school! Who knew first day of school will forever be a day that I am excited for.
So my second year of teaching starts and I’m pretty sure I’m more nervous this year than I was last year. New curriculum, new rules, new people, new students. So much change!
Times like today make me think of this great book I once read to students: First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg.
( yes I am writing a blog post before 7 am and yes that is amazon because let’s be real amazon is life)
Now I don’t want to spoil the ending if you haven’t read it quite yet but I do recommend you pick it up and read it to your kids and even for yourself. It has great illustrations, simple but effective language and a great message. Everyone has things they are scared of or are nervous about and it’s ok. Feelings are meant to be felt and acknowledging this is important as a role model to children.
So feel scared and nervous and excited about this new start and let me know how your first day back to school went 😊
