First Day Jitters

Monday, August 19, 2013

Happy first day of school! Today we read First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg. We talked about what we felt when we got up this morning. Some were excited, some anxious, some very sleepy! We loved the ending where we find out the teacher had some first day "jitters" as well. The kids loved the story. Afterwards, we did a shared reading of the "Jitter Juice" poem. The students copied it into their new writing journal.
Once we were done writing, we finally got to taste some Jitter Juice - a mixture of Hawaiian punch, Sprite, and Rainbow Sherbet. Class consensus - yum!
