The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn is one of my favorite back to school books! It is a precious story about a little raccoon named Chester who is nervous about his first day at school. His mother shares with him a family tradition – the kissing hand. She explains that whenever he misses home, he can touch his hand to his cheek to feel comfort!
For today’s Wild About Books Wednesday, I want to share an easy-peasy craft and language ideas!
Crafts must be selected carefully for speech/language therapy. Crafts that require little to no instructions are best! I always make sure they’re low prep and compliment the therapy session! I found the perfect craft for this book on Pinterest – a kissing hand. I simplified the cute craft that I found, which you can see by clicking HERE.
Students just trace their hand, cut it out, and glue a heart in the middle! Easy. Peasy.
