Non-messy "Jitter Glitter" for first-day nerves. I didn't want sticky juice or messy glitter, so instead I use a decorated antibacterial hand gel that has the glittery-like beads, which magically disappear as kids rub their hands together. Read the book First Day Jitters, then give each kid a tiny squirt of this on their hands. (It also helps to keep germs at bay on the first day!)
FREE!! Help ease any nerves that your new friends may have about starting school this year! This is a letter to send to them, in the mail, a few days before school starts. I stick mine in an envelope with some glitter for them to sprinkle under their pillow the night before school. This set includes a 2 colored versions, and a black and white one.
Great idea for open house/meet the teacher night at the beginning of the school year! Print these on 2"x4" mailing labels and apply them to envelopes containing "Jitter Glitter" and The Night Before School poem. Poems and directions for "Jitter Glitter" can be found in my TPT store!
