Today we read The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn. It is a story about a little raccoon who is feeling a bit scared to go to school on his first day. His mother comes up with an idea to help her little raccoon to remember that she loves him and is thinking about him even when she isn't with him.
We talked about our nervousness about coming to school and also about how our moms and dads might feel when we are away from them. We made some special kissing hands for our parents or loved ones!We are also working on retelling and acting out the story. This is lots of fun to do (and to watch!)
