The Kissing Hand, by Audrey Penn, is one of my favorite back to school stories.

Inspired by this sweet tale of a little raccoon going off to school, with a kiss from his mom, I designed the “Where’s the Raccoon?” packet.

It’s filled with games, activities, & an emergent reader, which will help students understand spatial directions: on, off, in, out, behind, between, beside, left, right, above, below, over & under.

The packet includes:

* 2 “Where’s the Raccoon?” posters

* 13 - full-color, teacher direction cards featuring a tree. (Use as mini posters or large flashcards.)

* A “shapely apple” teacher’s poster, featuring 2D shapes.

* A teacher’s, large color copies, for an apple/tree “Where’s the Raccoon?” whiteboard game.

* Matching, smaller copies for students, in color & black and white, so they can play along. (Great for whole group assessing too).

* 13-mini word cards for games, writing & alphabetizing activities, plus whole group assessing.

* “Where’s the Raccoon?” Memory Match or “I Have; Who Has?” game. Make an extra set, cut in half and have students put them together in an independent puzzle center.

* 13 - pocket chart cards, with matching mini sets.

* Teacher’s large color copy of “Where’s the Raccoon?” emergent reader.

* Matching (4-on-a-page) black & white student copy.

* 1-page matching mini copy, to make Itty Bitty booklets.

* An alphabetical list of 33 simple prepositions your students will come across. (21 are on the Dolch word lists.)

* Matching bookmarks for your students.

* 2 “definition of a preposition” posters.

* Preposition Pokey song.

* Directions, tips & tricks.
