Every year on the first day of school we read The Kissing Hand by Audrey Petruly my goal for the school year is to incorporate class books into our reading library in the classroom.
After we read The Kissing Hand I gave each student a page of our book. I traced their hand on the paper and let them color it in. I also asked them how they felt on the first day of school. After they were done decorating their hand they glued a red heart in the middle of their palm to represent the kiss. I got this idea off of Pinterest from Chalk Talk!
And this one below cracks me up!
He said he was wanting to stay home! Oh well, at least he’s honest!!!!
