For today's Wild About Books Wednesday, I want to share an easy-peasy craft and language ideas!
Pinterest - a kissing hand. I simplified the cute craft that I found, which you can see by clicking HERE.
Students just trace their hand, cut it out, and glue a heart in the middle! Easy. Peasy.
There are many ways you can use The Kissing Hand to enhance speech/language:
1) Use excerpts from the book to practice /ch/. You can even make a carrier phrase with Chester, such as.... "Chester sees a _____." Also, instead of gluing one big heart onto the hand, your articulation kids can glue lots of tiny hearts on the hand that contain their target words!
2) Inferencing - Why is Chester going to school at night? I love the accuracy of this book! Help students figure out that raccoons are nocturnal!
3) Compare/Contrast - Students can compare/contrast themselves with Chester!
Have you used this book in therapy? Please comment and share your ideas!
