Chrissy at First Grade Found Me is having a book linky party! She has some great beginning of the year school books on her list.
I have quite a few beginning of the school year books from my years of teaching K-2. Here are my must haves:
|I share a variety of filling bucket books during the first week of school. This ties in with my classroom management system. This particular story tells a story about a boy's day and how his and others' buckets are dipped and filled.|
|This is a story that young children can relate to. It is also a great lead in to active listening routines.|
|P.K. Hallinan has some very cute books. I like to use this particular one to let my students know that I am their friend too.|
|This is one I love to use in first grade. David Catrow is one of my favorite illustrators!|
|This is another great kindergarten book. I like to use it to think aloud how I did things alike and different than Miss Bindergarten. My students make a classbook telling how they get ready for kindergarten.|
|This is a great math book for counting, colors, sorting, patterning, and beginning addition.|
What are your must have books?
