First, I'd recommend reading several My Weird School books. I'll highlight which ones I used. Open with a read aloud and let the books tell you what to do from there.
Here are a couple more ideas to make this program really great. Take a class picture with strange props and funny hats to distribute to kids at the end of the program. Have the kids make up their own funny teacher names and bios. Example: Miss Torbeck is a Total Wreck (my maiden name was Torbeck). I'd be the wacky library and let's kids talk in the library and build forts with cushions and act out books. The flip side of that could be Mrs Erickson is Just No Fun-the total stereotype librarian that's mean and won't let anyone touch the books. Ohh, there's a cool Jekyll and Hyde element here!
Most importantly, let the children enjoy the books and the zaniness, and teachers, try to embrace some of the weirdness. It will definitely help your students with the first day jitters!
My Weird School!

If I say the secret word, then I’ll kiss a pig!
