    We made a book. We titled it Our Book about the First Day Jitters. I had the kids retell the story, then gave each student a sentence that they illustrated. We then put the pages in order and put the book together. It was a popular addition to the class library.

    Just for a heads up...if you have not looked at Scholastic book order online ordering yet, they have First Day Jitters for $1!

    I am just using it the first day to introducing Think Pair Share...share how you felt the first day of first grade. Hey...just thought of doing it as a predictable chart..."I felt/feel..." If only I had more time to squeeze other things in!
