Handprint and Footprint Arts & Crafts: Back to School with The Kissing Hand {Round-up}

I *heart* this! We sometimes forget how difficult the first day of school can be for some kids

First day project: Friend Tree. Everyone puts their thumb print on the tree then teacher later frames it and hangs it as a reminder that we are all friends.

Have your class tell you some things they will miss about summer and things they are looking forward to school. Good conversations to be had!

First Day of School ideas. I'm always looking for some other ones! :)

Crissy's Crafts: Kissing Hand Keys

Idea for ice breaker game except students would list descriptive words on paper than sit in two circles inside one another. Like musical chairs except they'd be filling out stories with each other's words like a mad lib.

great predictable writing/shared writing idea- for PreK, change to first week of school and only ask 4-5 kids a day so that they are not being required to sit still for more than 10 minutes.

    I like to do centers and activities with The Kissing Hand during the first few days.
