I never get tired of reading this story to my class at the beginning of the year. It is a nice "ice breaker" to let them know that even teachers get a "little" nervous. I also like this story because it leads into talking about emotions. Some students seem leery to say they are nervous or scared but simple things in our life can cause these emotions and that is nothing to be ashamed of!!
So the packet contains:
