Today I need a favor…
Hanna’s going to Kindergarten next year, and it appears as though she’s pretty scared about the whole thing. This fear has manifested itself in a few ways that I won’t go into here…
She has a “practice” day next week, where she’ll actually go to her new classroom and spend a couple hours in class ~ with some of her classmates, getting to know her new teacher.
I’m hoping this introduction will help alleviate some of her fears ~ she’ll at least realize she’ll know people there (her friends from preschool are moving up too), and will get to meet her teacher, and familiarize herself with the new classroom.
I would like, in addition to have some books to read with her over the summer about going to kindergarten. I did order a get set for kindergarten pack of books from Scholastic this month… the pack included:
It is a set put together to help alleviate worries/fears about going to kindergarten. My favor is this:
Can you tell me what are your favorite kindergarten books or books that help kids deal with change? (specifically or not ~ about going to kindergarten?)
Update: My kiddo is now going into the 3rd grade. We found these books immensely helpful, especially at just starting conversations about what Kindegarten was going to be like, and the things she was worrying about. We’ve retired most of these books… but as I was updating this post she walked by and said “Oh! Wmeberly Worried… I love that book! I still read it!”. So, yeah, some of them are definitely still in rotation at the Lee house. 🙂
