picture books with school theme

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am trying to organize my first reading unit and doing something different from last year. I want to keep the theme of the basal (School Days), but since I use Readers Workshop, I want to use picture books as mentor texts for the first unit. So, I'm looking for school / beginning of the year themed books. I am looking for picture books only for the first unit. So far I have:
Tattle Tongue
The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes
Lacey Walker, NonStop Talker
Chrysanthemum

Any other ideas? I want to have a lot of choices when I sit down to plan. Thanks!

My 2 fave back to school books

Splat the Cat by Rob Scotton (There's a whole series, but the original one is about the first day of school)
Butterflies in my Stomach and Other School Hazards by Serge Bloch (great for teaching idioms)

If you want a good read aloud for the beginning of the year, The Worst/Best School Year by Barbara Robinson is great....I teach 5th grade, but I think it would be OK for 1st as it is way too easy for most of my kids.
