The Kissing Hand and a Freebie

September 13, 2015

I love reading the Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn on the first day of school. The Kissing Hand is a story about a little raccoon that doesn’t want to go to school.  His mom assures him that he will like school and tells him about a family secret–the kissing hand.   My students made Chester and then wrote about how they felt on the first day of school.

I found this adorable label on Pinterest.  You can get the free Kissing Hand treat bag labels from Happy Teacher, Happy Kids.

I get tired of doing the same thing every year.  This year for birthdays I decided to fill up cups with a silly straw, finger lights, and a few pieces of candy.  I got the idea from Learning is Something to Treasure.  I purchased the cups from Amazon.  I got a set of 100 for $17.99.  Needless to say, I have cups for a few years.

I am always reviewing math and grammar skills with my students.   This gives me an informal assessment on which students need extra help from me.   My students complete morning work while I collect homework, take attendance, and lunch count.   You can get a few FREE sample pages in the PREVIEW in my store.
