Resource Info

The first day of school can be extremely emotional – some children may feel scared or worried, whilst others may feel excited and eager to start this new milestone in their lives. This activity is all about discussing how your child feels about starting school.

Directions: Have them draw how the first day of school makes them feel and discuss. If they draw an unhelpful emotion such as worried, sad, or scared – be sure to explore this with them in more detail and make a plan for how you can help reliver their fears or worries.
