Back To School Books For Your Child

books-2Exploring books in the Red Room (2s)

Story time is an important part of your child’s day at The International Preschools. Each day, at least one book is read aloud to the class that is related to the current classroom theme. During these first days and weeks of school, most teachers focus on getting children acquainted with the daily routines inside their classroom, in addition to following simple rules: cleaning up after themselves after choice time and snack, hanging their coats and backpacks in their cubbies, and playing cooperatively with their peers, to name a few. The books read aloud at IPS during the month of September often center around the topic of the first day of school.

According to the Scholastic Books website, “Picture books offer your young child the chance to answer her never-ending questions about the world” around him/her. Our IPS teachers would love to share the following books with you and your child. The stories below provide a forum for asking and answering questions to gain comfort and confidence when encountering common social situations.
