First Day Read Aloud

It has been over a year since I have blogged, but with the beginning of a new school year I am quite excited.  I'm sad to see the summer end, but I am looking forward to start the adventure of another school year.  Although I am excited, I am nervous too.  What will this new school year bring?

My favorite book to ease the students (and myself) back into the new school year is First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg.  If you haven't read it before, I'm sure you will love it!
Sarah Jane the main character is worried about going to a new school. She refuses to get out of bed because she keeps imagining all the bad things that can happen. At the end, you discover that Sarah Jane is actually the teacher.  What a surprising and fun ending!
What books do you like to read at the beginning of a new school year?

  1. Hi Dawn,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is: 



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
