Welcome your preschool and kindergarten children to school with a treat topped with these tags that go with Audrey Penn's adorable story about a little raccoon who was afraid to start school.
As you read, talk about Why was Chester nervous? How did his Mama make him feel better? Who would you give a kissing hand to?
Then hand out the treat bags and with instructions to share a kiss at home with someone they love! A parent note is included to encourage story retelling at home.
Update! Have more than one adult in your classroom? You can now choose your labels that read:
- "we're so glad you're here" OR
- "I'm so glad you're here."
