Do you need a lil Jitter Mix?

OMIgoodness! Do you have the back-to-school jitters? Well, if you saw the pic of my classroom on my post yesterday, you know I've got a bad an extreme case of The Jitters! {That room is a disaster zone! YIKES!!} The beginning of a school year can be a really scary thing for kids {& teachers!} As much as we try to prepare our kiddos with cutsie lil postcards & open house goody bags, there are still gonna be some "first day jitters." I absolutely LOVE to read this book on the first day...
I know this book is specific to first grade, but there are tons of other back-to-school books-here's just a few...

I love love the idea of making "Jitter Juice" to go along with this book & decided to add a lil snack with our juice....TaDa! "JITTER MIX"! Who doesn't love to nibble on their favorite lil snack? Especially if you are a little bit nervous or uneasy...Yep! Jitter Mix is gonna take all those first day jitters away. There really is no secret recipe....just mix together your own special ingredients, scoop into ziploc bags, attach the special "Jitter Mix" labels and you are set to go!
You can find these labels & tons of  "Jitter Mix" & back-to-school activities in my "First Grader at Last!" Back-to-School unit. It was inspired by several cute back-to-school books such as First Grade Jitters & Junie B. Jones First Grader at Last! Click HERE or on the pic to check it out!

And by request, I have put together a little mini-unit: "Back-to-School Jitter Mix Fun!" This lil packet contains only the Jitter Mix activities {that are included in the First Grader at Last unit} & is not grade specific-perfect for PreK thru 3rd grade! Click HERE or on the pic below to see more!

Ok, back to Pinterest for more classroom inspiration {I need a lil more "pin-couragement" before I can face my classroom again!}
