I made these mini-books to help me during the first weeks of school when I am introducing the students to the campus, routines and procedures of kindergarten.
I’ve found that it is important to talk about the nurse and when it is appropriate to visit.
The books use simple, kindergarten friendly text to reinforce my beginning of the year unit, “Welcome to Kindergarten” and my unit on “Community Helpers.”
I also like that students will take the reader home and can talk about the nurse with their family, why the nurse works on campus, when it is important to ask to go, as well as when and why it is not.
I hope that you also find it to be a useful resource in your classroom!
