Kissing Hand Freebie
I have been working on my first real activity pack. I decided to build upon a lesson I do on the first day of school in conjunction with reading The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn (and not tearing up while reading it). It is a great story!! The pack is 14 pages long and includes a ton of resources for teachers to use with the book on that special first day of school. The pack includes two handprint poems, three craft templates, a word search, a math matching number game, and a vocabulary word/definition pocket chart whole group activity. Here are some pictures of the crafts you’ll make:
Anyway, click below and visit my all new TPT store. Download the pack and any of my other freebies I have added…all I ask is, if you don’t mind, follow my new store and rate any of my products…they are all free, so what do you have to lose?
I love The Kissing Hand! We always do it on the first day of school. I have it on my list of "to do's" this Summer. I can't wait to see your packet! Thank you!!

What an awesome activity pack! I am totally using this on the first day of school! Thanks for sharing it with us!!
Jennifer, I love all of the ideas in your unit. How fun to have even more ideas for my first read aloud. Thank you! One suggestion I have is to make sure you use a font for the first poem that is easy to read so that the first graders that are readers can attempt to read it. (Others may disagree with me, but I always try to use fonts that are easy to read, rather than cute – and it's hard because I LOVE cute!!!) I am excited about using your ideas! Thank you!
Thanks guys! @Camille..I struggled with the font choice…I will make another copy of the poem with an easier to read font- and list in the next little bit! Thanks for the suggestion!
This is so cute! Thanks for sharing! Come over and join our linky party!
Sooo cute! Thanks for joining my linky party and thanks for sharing!
Jennifer, Your link takes you to TpT but not your store. You may want to change that.
I'm a new follower & I love those ideas! Thanks for sharing!! 🙂

I just grabbed your Kissing Hand Packet. It's VERY sweet and you're so generous to make it free. I'm a new follower of your store. I tried to comment there, but couldn't figure out how.
This looks great but is it not free anymore? When I go to your store it's says $4.00? We just read the kissing hands books and are studying Kk in our homeschool preschool lesson this week. I wanted to supplement the books with what looks like some wonderful fun things. Just curious if maybe I am looking in the wrong place now.
I know and I apologize! What happened is that the company that I bought the clipart from changed their usage policy so that I could no longer use it for free items…so I had to change it to an item for sale, unless I wanted to purchase an additional license or new clipart from a different company =( I do think there is still a free "download preview" activity at TPT. Sorry about the confusion!!
