20 Back to School Read Alouds

It's back to school time! You know what that means...I can't decide which book I should read first! Or second, or third, so on and so forth. Lol!

For me, deciding what books to read during the first few weeks of school is a big decision. The first stories I share with my students will help me establish the classroom culture. These books are meant to set the tone for the first day, the first few weeks, and the entire school year. There are so many great books and I want to read ALL OF THEM!

I made a list of some of my favorites that would be great for kicking off a new school year. This list has a little something for everyone from Kindergarten to 5th grade.  Hopefully, you will find something to help you get your school year started on the right track.  Happy New School Year!

Keep scrolling to see the books grouped by the message or
topics that I center and our first class discussions around.

Message: Welcome! We are ready and we ALL belong here!

Message: We are ALL readers! There are lots of  ways to read. 
The important thing is that we just READ!

Message: Our names are important! Our families choose names for us
that mean something. It is important for everyone to respect show respect by
pronouncing them correctly and understanding that they are part of who we are.

Message: Many students struggle with things in school 
but we are smart in many different ways. It is important 
to discover how we learn best and embrace it.

Message: What you do matters. You have the power to decide.

Message: How we see ourselves? How do others see us? 
How do we want others to see us? How do we handle life experiences? 

Message: Acceptance and respect. Treat everyone the way you would like to be treated.

What book(s) are you looking forward to sharing with your new crew?
