The first weeks of school are an important time to establish routines and teach daily schedules. Many kinders feel quite anxious at first and they express their anxiety with questions about the daily schedule like, “What’s next?” or “When do we go home?”
This pack includes a full color teacher read-a-loud book that introduces your students to the subjects and routines of school with simple text and a corresponding mini-reader that your students can color.
Also included are display cards that can be used for your daily schedule, center rotations, and more.

It seems obvious, but taking the time to help your student navigate their new environment with less anxiety, more independence, and with respect for rules and procedures is very important.
I created this mini-reader to complement my “Welcome to Kindergarten” unit.
Each page has simple text about an area of campus that your students will visit including: the playground, the nurse’s office, the cafeteria, special area classes, and more.
I’m hoping to complete a series of book relating to the rules and procedures for each area of campus as well. This way we can color and draw in our reader as we learn about our school and practice routines.
I hope you also find this mini-reader to be a helpful teaching tool for you and your classroom. I know I need all the resources that I can get to help me teach effectively during the first weeks!
