Back to School: Read Alouds

Hey Friends! It's Theresa here from True Life I'm a Teacher! Here in my part of Georgia teachers go back to school on July 27th, and my sweet seconds will be coming on August 3rd! Ready or not?!?!

The first week of school is a time of routines, procedures, expectations, relationship and community building, and sometimes feels like herding about 300 wet cats. One of my favorite things to incorporate are LOTS of read alouds that lend themselves to having conversations about rules and expectations, and how we should treat one another.
Great list of books and read alouds perfect for back to school that help build and foster a classroom community, and help teach rules, procedures, responsibility, and expectations.
Perhaps my favorite thing about these books is that it's almost as if the characters in the books become part of our class. We think back to what Alexander did when he was having a terrible day, or how Albert kept trying, and thinking, and reading to learn and discover new things. We refer back to the characters throughout the year when students in our class face problems and challenges in real life.

Below you'll find my 26 (because 25 would be silly, right?) favorite back to school read alouds! Since I've included a bunch of books, I'm not actually writing about any of them...just giving you some ideas for books I personally LOVE!

Each picture links to Amazon just to make it easy - you can read reviews, a summary, and order should you choose! You can find the entire list HERE!

You made it to the end! I sure do hope you found a new book you'd like to read this year (and maybe not even at the beginning of the year)!

One of the books I mentioned above is "On a Beam of Light" which tells the story of Albert Einstein. I actually just discovered this book a few weeks ago, and pretty much fell in love...with a book. Surely, I'm not the only one this happens to?

Anyway, throughout the book there are several words that just "spoke to me" - made me want to yell, "YES!" The words serve as motivational reminders for students, teachers...anyone really, and I knew I had to have them represented in my classroom! Below you'll find a printable of the words. You can grab it here, or by clicking on the picture below! Enjoy :)
