My Y5s, firsties, and kinders, all LOVE the story The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn.
It's one of my favorite back to school books and perfect for that sometimes scary first day of school. With that in mind, I designed some interesting activities to go along with it.
I've included a cover as well as a discussion poster.
Get to know how your own students feel by discussing emotions & feelings. Print off the large hand poster. As students share how they feel after the 1st day or week of school, jot them down.
