Many this past week have started school, my son started last week so posts have been lax due to that change. Some are just continuing while others are having their first school experience. Some are having a great old time, while others are having a bit harder of a time. It may be mom or dad and not our kids. Below are some great movies and books to ease and get your child talking about their school experiences. Some may see similarities in their feelings or activities at school and may open up because of it.
This one helped me when I took my son to Tiny Tots for the first time. I borrowed the book about a month in advance but it is a great read any time, any year.
Who doesn’t love Daniel the Tiger? My children are currently obsessed with his books and movies. My daughter cries to have her tiger book in bed. I like Daniel because there is usually a positive message not just a plain story.
Ms. Frizzle may be one of the best examples of how fun learning can be with the right teacher. This may be awesome motivation for your little one. This is one even kids that don’t like school will love. Check out the new Netflix adaption with newer, up to date caricatures.
Bubble Guppies are another great fun duo for small aged children. Getting ready for school is the first step into easing and comforting our children for the big day.
If you haven’t found a character your toddler would like, check out this great DVD with fun characters from Nickelodeon.
I loved Amelia Bedelia as a child. Boy was she funny! This book is sure to make light of the school experience and help children feel like what went on in their day was easy compared to her antics.
Another great classic. These bears are great for teaching and getting your children to talk about school. They may say their day was just fine but when reminded of activities with their favorite character’s all those conversations you wanted to hear will burst forth.
Oh, that Mouse! He is off to another adventure. I can’t wait to read this one myself. Always so funny and entertaining.
Happy reading and watching!!
