When N started preschool a couple of years ago, I was more nervous than he was. He didn’t speak more than a handful of words in English, we had just brought his baby sister home a few weeks before, and he was still very much a baby in my eyes. To prepare, we spoke and read a lot of books about school, how fun it is, and what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised to see how much his daily routine mimicked the daily routine described in the books we were reading and really think that helped him feel confident in school from day 1.
We also have a tradition of buying a new book for the start of the school year (and for each holiday and special occasion…clearly I don’t have a problem buying books…), so maybe you’ll find a new book for your young Spanish speaker to start off the school year!
These are not in Spanish, but my kids have enjoyed these books in English about starting school and attending preschool:
