I love to read "First Grade Stinks!" during the first week of first grade! In addition to reading the book, I like to make a venn diagram so my students and I can compare and contrast first grade vs. kindergarten. This year, I wanted to incorporate another activity to go along with the book. Student can write about why first grade won't stink and also draw a picture to go along with it. This quick activity could be made into a bulletin board display, used as a start of the year sample, or displayed on a "wow work" etc. board.
