"Chrysanthemum" and "The Kissing Hand" Activity

Since the first week of school, especially that 1st day, can be exhausting, I designed these 2 "color me" worksheets, as a fun, quiet and independent little something children can do at the end of the day.

They're a real sanity saver, as kiddos are happily engaged coloring and writing their names, while you have a few peaceful minutes to get things ready for dismissal.

First & 2nd graders can write why they had a great day on the back of their paper.

The worksheets are based on 2 of my favorite back to school books: "The Kissing Hand" and "Chrysanthemum".

Since the caption "I had a great day!" is generic, you can use it whenever.
