If you're not familiar with this book; it's about Chester Raccoon & he doesn't want to go to school. His mom assures him that he'll love school. Even better, she has a secret for him--the Kissing Hand. She takes his hand, and kisses his palm: "Chester felt his mother's kiss rush from his hand, up his arm, and into his heart." Whenever he feels lonely at school, all he has to do is press his hand to his cheek to feel the warmth of his mother's kiss.
It's a really sweet book, and lends itself beautifully to first day conversations. I had talked about earllier doing a scavenger hunt after reading this book. I finally finished!! Here's a sneak peak of it, but you can find it in my Teachers pay Teachers store (button to the right on the bloggy bar.)
These are the QR codes that will be posted in different places for them to scan using the iPod app. There are plenty free apps available; just search for "free QR scanner."
Here's the link to my first post about QR codes in the classroom; just in case you missed it.
