School starts tomorrow. It's our last night of summer vacation. For my last summer review, I picked David Goes To School by David Shannon. Good Boy, Fergus, also by David Shannon, kicked off my summer reading - so I decided to end with another book by him. There are a lot of David books. The first graders always get a kick out of David because he's so naughty. We are secretly hoping there is not a "David" in this year's class!
David hears the word "no" a lot because he has no self control. We talk about what David could have done instead.
When you are a little kid or puppy, this is always an issue. Always.
Oh, David is sooooooo bad! Do you see the drawing of Fergus on his desk?
David finally gets to go home. We always hope David can follow the rules and is ready to learn when he comes back to school the next day.
I helped make some "magic dough" for the students tomorrow. Every student gets a little ball of dough. There's magic in the air on the first day of first grade for a first grader. If you squish the dough (when you get the OK to!) and it turns a color, you are going to have a GREAT year! If it doesn't turn a color, UH OH.
