The Kissing Hand Packet

Each school year brings lots of different experiences.  However, in my classroom the school year always started the exact same way……..with the book The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn.  It is one of my favorite books! !

In the story a young raccoon, named Chester, is scared about starting school.  His Mother teaches him the secret of “The Kissing Hand” and he happily goes to school with love in his heart. 

I have created a packet to start the year with this wonderful book.  Most of the activities are whole group activities for the beginning of the year.  It is a great packet to use in conjunction with any other Kissing Hand materials you already may use in the classroom.

This Kissing Hand Packet can be purchased in my TPT store.  Be sure to check out other FREEBIES in my store. 

Along with this packet I am including a FREEBIE!  This is a simple coloring page to go along with the book.  I hope you all can start your year off with this wonderful book!

For this packet I used clipart from kpmdoodles.
