Kissing Hand Responses

I read my students that classic story The Kissing Hand. I asked them to think from the perspective of a parent and write what they would do to ease their child's anxieties on the first day of school. Here's what they came up with:

my mom would give me a high-five that would stay on my hand

give a picture of me and his mom

I would trade my brain with his brain

I would hug my little girl

give my favorite crayon

A teacher's favorite way to handle it:"I would really fast go" ! :)


  1. I know from experience that this is a really hard concept for these young ones! The last one is my favorite, "I would really fast go!"
