Product Description

I read The Kissing Hand to my students on the first day of school, and teach them to find comfort in the warmth of their own hands from the kisses that were left on them, just like Chester. The Kissing Hand has been a gift to teachers and parents for decades for the comfort it brings young students experiencing separation anxiety!

This free download includes:

  • a coloring page with an explanation of the story and how the 'magic' works to send home for parents / guardians / caregivers
  • a second coloring page of Chester
  • two versions of a short black and white book about what hands are for (I plan to create a more full version in the future, with groups of kids, color version, and full Sight-Word-Stages options, so keep your eye out!) This little reader links nicely with Kindness bulletin board and picture book lessons.

Thank you in advance, to those of you who generously take the time to leave feedback.
