The first day of school is an exciting time for both students and teachers, but everyone is feeling a little nervous and jittery! First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg is a humorous book with an unexpected twist at the end. After you read the story to your students, they will rate the book using simple yes/no answers. They should then talk with a partner about their responses. Next, they will circle various emojis to describe how they are feeling about starting a new school year. This activity includes both in-person and digital activities.
