It is kind of crazy to think that it will be back to school time very soon. The summer is just FLYING by! If you cannot tell already, I really do like using picture books in the classroom and there is no better way to introduce this to my students than the first few days of school. The first week of school always brings a wide range of emotions for students (and teachers too!). These back to school books will be a perfect way to help students feel more comfortable in the classroom and excited for the wonderful school year that is set to come.
