On the first day of school, second grade read the book First Day Jitters, by Julie Danneberg. The story is about Sarah Jane Hartwell, who is scared about starting at a new school and meeting new students. She tried everything to get out of going to school, but Mr. Hartwell makes her go and assures her that starting over at a new school won’t be as bad as she thinks. When Sarah walks into her new classroom on that first day of school, we discover that Sarah Jane Hartwell is the new teacher! Our second graders talked about some of the feelings that students and even teachers have on the first day of school. To overcome all our jitters about starting second grade, we made a delicious drink of lemon lime sherbet and strawberry drink mix which was called Jitter Juice! Our students boldly drank the Jitter Juice and now have overcome all jittery feelings about starting second grade!
