Back To School With Guess Who? Lidia from Kinder Alphabet

Please give my guest blogger today, Lidia from Kinder Alphabet, a warm welcome.  You are going to love love love the back to school goodies she brought with her today.


Hello friends! This is Lidia from Kinder Alphabet. I am happy to be guest blogging for Marsha today.   We are still trying to share Back to School resources to prepare you before your return to work.

I have some favorite books for the first week of school. One of them is the Kissing Hand. Many students come to school for the first time ever. They always seem to relate to the little raccoon who has his insecurities about going to school. We especially like the part where the raccoon places his hand on his cheek to feel his mother's love. After the story, we discuss how we feel on the first day of school. Then, we practice kissing our palms to represent our mom's love and then press it gently on our cheeks. I tell them to do this throughout the day when they are missing home. It is so precious to see students do this on their own during the day. It becomes like their security blanket:)  I would like to share this student book that you can incorporate after reading the Kissing Hand.


Another book that I love is Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. The students love to read this alphabet book time and time again. You can read the story. You can chant the story. You can even sing the song that goes with along with it. It's too much fun. Here is a resource that you might like to add to your unit.


Finally, I have another resources that I just finished. You can use it to create a birthday graph on a bulletin board. It also includes birthday balloons that you can tape to pixy stix,  krazy straws or colorful pencils. You might be able to use this during your All About Me unit when students are learning more about themselves and becoming familiar with their birth dates. This is a google doc. Make sure to go to File and then Download so that you can see the pictures clearly. The doc seems to be showing the balloons without the colorful patterns. You should have no problem once you download it:)

It was fun sharing with you today. I hope that you find my resources useful. Feel free to stop by my blog sometime and see what other resources will be offered throughout the year:)
Make sure you take some time to visit Lidia's blog, you're sure to get some more great tips.
See you tomorrow for our last (sniff, sniff) day of Back To School with Guess Who?
