The Kissing Hand is a Fantasy (F) picture book written by Audrey Penn and illustrated by Ruth E. Harper and Nancy M. Leak. The Kissing Hand is a story about a raccoon, named Chester, being wary of going to school for the first time. His mother kissed the palm of Chester‘s hand and told him whenever he needed to, to press it to his face and the kiss will remind him how much his mother loves him. Later in the story, Chester kisses his mother‘s ⬇️

AmeliaS21 and she also had a kissing hand. This story is great for the first week of school! I chose for this to be a read aloud (RA) so that as a teacher, I could interact with my students. The activity I chose is a cute goody bag for your students on the first day. You put Hershey kisses in individual bags and give each student one. You also give them a note that says “thanks for a great first day of school! Here are some kisses from my hands to yours!”⬇️ 5y

Side by Side is a Fantasy (F) picture book written by Rachel Bright and illustrated by Debi Gliori. Side by Side is a story about a young Little Mouseling that would get left out because of how small she was. Throughout the story, the mouseling asks “is there nobody here who will stay by my side?” As other animals answered, the mouseling was finding that she couldn‘t hangout with the frogs, the squirrel, the owl, and so on. Until one day... ⬇️

AmeliaS21 The little black vole and the mouseling became best friends. This story has a great message for students about friendship!

KaitlynN I love this book! It would be really interesting to do an Eric Carle author study and incorporate art from several of his books.

Whoever You Are is a NF children‘s picture book written by Mem Fox and illustrated by Leslie Staub. This would be a great book to bring in during the first week of class. This book is about unity between people of different cultures. The context of the book is fairly simple which is why I would recommend this book for Kindergarten and First grade. I would either use this book for a RA or PR based on my class‘ reading levels. Post continued below⬇️

AmeliaS21 I think this book would be great for PR because the text isn‘t complicated. Having your students read together and build a relationship is important in every classroom. This book is a fun way for your students to do that. UDL: 2.1, 8.3 ESOL: 2, 4, 14, 26 Continue reading below ⬇️ (edited) 5y
AmeliaS21 This link provides resources and activities you can link to this book. One activity I found interesting was a “book walk” where the students go around the room and look at the pages of the book. You can have the students either write down or discuss the different landscapes they see. I really liked this book because it is important for students to understand the different cultures they may see in their classrooms. 5y

DrSpalding Love the idea of partner reading and the book walk. Technically it is not non-fiction because the children in the story are not real. What do you think the correct genre is? 5y
AmeliaS21 @DrSpalding @DrSpalding I wasn‘t completely sure of the genre. When I looked it up it said it fell under the category of NF which is why I put that! I do see now that since the children aren‘t real that it may fall under RF. 5y
