I can’t believe summer is over and it is time to head back to school!!! My daughter is starting her last year of preschool this year…. where does the time go! Changes in routines can be hard for both adults and kids, I have found prepping in advance for the changes can be helpful, especially with big changes like starting preschool, or starting kindergarten, or starting at a new school. A fun way to talk about the transition is by using books! Here are two of my favorite books for pre school and early elementary aged kid for supporting with heading back to school:

1.Pete the Cat Rocking in My School Shoes-I love the Pete the Cat Series! This book comes with a fun song that gives you the website link to view, or you could also search on youtube and find. I often use this book in the first week school with my classes and incorporate a craft with it.
2. The Night Before Preschool-I love the “night before” series and you can often find them at Target for just a few dollars, which is great! I have used this book with my daughter at the beginning of the year when transitioning back to school and she loves it! They also have a “night before” kindergarten too.
Happy Back to School!
