Back to School Books!

I love picture books.  Here are some of my favorites (I tried to pick books for a variety of grade levels).  There are so many fabulous picture books to choose from, it was VERY difficult to pick out my favorite!!!!  Check out First Grade and Fabulous, for many more great ideas! 

If you are looking for a great "first day of school" project, First Grade A La Cart has an adorable link to a class book that you can make for your classroom library based on The Important Book.

PS- The polka dot paper is from Ashley Hughes

**I am super excited.  I made the Free Download section of the Teachers Pay Teachers Newsletter.  You can download the sight word matching game here :)  This weeks newsletter has lots of great ideas on keeping students engaged.  


  1. OHH I see one I need to check into-A Fine, Fine School. Thanks so much for linking up! :)

    First Grade and Fabulous

  2. When I read that one, I always tell students I am just like the principal in the school :) It is one of my favorite ones to read aloud (I use lots of gestures and different voices), and I love it when 4th and 5th graders are just frozen listening to it!!!

  3. I love, love, love the books you chose!

    Following you now :)

    1. I probably could have put all your books on my favorite list :) This was a GREAT linky party. I'm getting lots of new ideas!

  5. Bridget, thank you so much for posting these days! I've never heard of "The Name Jar" before. I'll have to go to Amazon and check it out. It's really cool that you got into TPT's newsletter! Was it something that you had to fill out or apply for?

    Have a wonderful 4th of July!
