Books and Teaching Plans about Worries


Talking with students about worries and being anxious

Coming back to school after the dismissal is a big change for our young students. For some students, their first day of PreK or Kindergarten will be their first full day in a school experience. It is natural for students to have concerns about a change like this in their lives. And one of the ways we can deal with worry is through the shared experience of story.

This page will host some award-winning books selected by SLCSD Librarians, teachers, and administrators that can be used in classroom to open the topics of worry and concern. This is not a comprehensive list; there are many wonderful books that can and will be added. Please submit your favorites to opens form to book lists so we can all share.

We will also be adding many of these titles to our opens sora.

Thank you!
