Picture Book Linky Party

Summer blogging=lots of linky parties!  
I start teaching summer school tomorrow so I will have more teacher things to blog about! 
I am linking up with DeAnne for her Picture Book Linky Party.  This week it is all about books for the first week of school! 
My kiddos absolutely LOVED books this past year!  As soon as I started reading a book the whole class became so calm and quiet...SO I read A LOT of books! ;)
Here are a few great books for that first week of school!

Love this one!  Perfect for the first day because a lot of the little ones are missing their mom.  I always ask the question-Why are they going to school at night?  Opens up discussion about nocturnal animals! :)

Great for expectations of the classroom! 

After we read this book, we talk about how we got ready for kindergarten!

Now it is your turn to link up and show off your favorite first week of school books!


  1. Our lists look similar :) I have never read any of the Dinosaur books but that is probably a good one to add to the mix. Thanks for the idea. Hope you are having a good weekend friend!

  3. Our book lists look very similar!! I don't have the dinosaur one though. Have fun at summer school! It's crazy how so many schools are cancelled tomorrow in MN because of the storms this weekend.
