A selection of top children’s books about first grade. Read these picture books with your child as you get ready for the new school year!
At my six-year-old’s school, the kindergarten lot is separate from first grade and up. And this makes sense: For many of them, kindergarten is the first time they’re in school. The first time they play with other children in a learning environment.
After having gone through TK and kindergarten, my son now has another big change: the first grade. He’ll be in a different part of campus away from the younger children. He’ll spend recess and PE in the big kids playground. And he’s expected to have more independence and interaction with older kids.
Throughout kindergarten, his teacher did a fantastic job of fostering those skills. She established the right environment to transition them into first grade.
Another tool that helps? Reading books.
