This book is a great way for first graders to get ready for the new school year. It can be completed on the first day of school or within the first few weeks. It is a great conversation starter (having students share their responses). Teachers can go through each page and have children complete the sentences then allow them to independently draw the pictures to match their sentences.
The book prompts children to think about what they are looking forward to about first grade and what they want to learn. It also allows them to practice writing their names, teacher's name, and school name.
