We then created our own Kissing Hand to share with loved one's at home.
The Kissing Hand Poem
Here's a special trick I know
When I'm sad and scared to go.
Take my hand and kiss it here,
This kiss from you, I will hold dear.
Down my hand and up my arm,
Into my heart the kiss goes on.
Talk about things you and your child can do to make him/her feel better when they may be sad or scared to leave you. (Please feel free to share your ideas with me, to help smooth the transition from home to school.)
