A great book for students who are nervous about going back to school.

It is ok for students to feel nervous about the first day of school. For some of our young students this will be their first experience of leaving home. It is good to talk to your student about the first day of school. Have your child help pick out their backpack, lunch box and water bottle. Visit Central Montessori Academy and play on the playground your are always welcome!

If your child is nervous about starting school or this is a first school experience I recommend the book, The Kissing Hand by: Audrey Penn this is a story of a young raccoon first day of school and the mother kisses the young raccoon’s hand to bring the mother’s love to school. This simple morning drop off ritual has helped many children transition to school.
