Making Connections - Model
through think-alouds times you have felt sad. (This
reminds me of .......). Have students discuss times they
felt sad and what helped them feel better.
Book Cover (Bulletin Board idea)-
In The Kissing Hand, Chester feels comfort when he puts
his hand on his cheek. Have students think of something
that gives them comfort. Have them create a book cover that
includes an appropriate title. For older students, have
them write a story about the item that gives them comfort.
Kissing Hand Bingo - Very cute activity
Hand Class Book - From Ms. McDowell's site.
Stationary for the Kissing Hand - Great for letters
Kissing Hand Questions - Can be used during a read aloud
or after. Makes a great reader's response for older
