This WELCOME TO SCHOOL book is designed for preschool and kindergarten teachers to use with their students in the beginning of the year. The book is easy to edit to personalize with the school name, image that represents the school, teacher name and image that represents the teacher (choose from 5 hair styles, 3 skin colors and pick your own hair color).
The book is a simple 11 page story with rhyming lines that explain what to expect at school. This packet contains a large 8 1/2 X 11" color book to be made to read to the class and a half page book for individual students. These half page books can be printed out in color or in black and white. I recommend making the half page books and sending them home to your students the week before school starts. By reading the books at home, the child will be more comfortable the first day, knowing what to expect. This is perfect to ease the mind of young children (or children with delays or disabilities) and their families.
The parents and children will love the books and appreciate the extra tool to help with the school transition. Once they come to school, when you sit for a story, line up to go somewhere or sit at the table for snack, the children will already understand and know what to expect. This will help make your job easier the first couple weeks as well. A letter to the parents that explains the book is included so you can put it in with your Welcome to School book.
