## More Common Core Kissing Hand Activities

1-2-3 Come Do Some Kissing Hand Activities With Me

Since all of The Kissing Hand Activities have been such popular downloads, I decided to make a few more activities to review all sorts of Common Core State Standards

The first packet has to do with the alphabet.  I've included large 5x7 upper and lowercase letter cards that you can use as flashcards or for Memory Match or "I Have; Who Has?" games.

Make an extra set; cut them apart, and use them for an ABC puzzle center.  I've included a tip list of all sorts of other things you can do with the cards, including a "Kaboom" game.

There are also mini cards.  Run them off and have students arrange them in alphabetical order, or don't cut them apart, and make the lowercase worksheet into an "I Spy" game board. Students color their uppercase heart-tiles and cut them apart.

Choose a student to call out a letter.  Students find the uppercase letter heart-tile and place it over the lowercase letter hand on their game board.  You can also have them glue them down.

I've also included several assessments, a recording sheet, plus 2 trace and write worksheets

The next packet is all about numbers.  There's a counting booklet for numbers 0-10, with a blank sheet to program with larger numbers.

Have students show "how many" with stickers, or X's (kisses) to show the group/set for each number.

Students trace the numbers and number words.   If you want to extend the activity, have them practice writing the numbers and words on the back of the pages.

I've included large and small "lipstick-ers" for your students to cut and glue the appropriate amount to the hands.

There are also large 8x10 number posters that you can use as flashcards or for games.  There's a blank hand for this activity as well, so that you or your students can make cards for those teen numbers and beyond.

As with the alphabet packet, this one also includes several trace and write worksheets. Click on the link to view/download The Kissing Hand Number Packet.

Finally, I wanted to toss in a "craftivity," so I designed some number, shape and letter sliders

There are two different "Chester" raccoons to choose from, as well as upper & lowercase letter strips, plus a shape strip.

If you want to reinforce numbers, choose a slider with numbers to 20, or practice skip counting with strips to count by 2's, 3's, 5's, and 10's.

Thanks for visiting.  I hope you found something here that you can use to help make learning even more fun. As always, feel free to PIN away.

It's steamy outside, as the gentle rain splashed all over the hot asphalt.  Time to pretend to be two again, as I go puddle jumping with my little grandson.  Hope you have a refreshing day!

## End Of The Year Activities: Reviewing The Alphabet

Won't You ABC With Me?

Are you looking for a few more fun things to plug in as the days wind down before summer vacation?

Do you like to send a few things home with your kiddo’s over the summer, so that they don’t forget the things that they learned?

Or…

Are you starting to tuck a few things away for back-to-school ideas?

No matter what your reason, I think you’ll enjoy these cute alphabet activities.

One of my favorite clipart designers is Laura Strickand.  I used her alphabet graphics to put together the packet: ABC Stuff.

The easy reader alphabet flipbook incorporates 60 Dolch words!  Students trace the word and lowercase letter, which match the cute uppercase picture.

You can also laminate the pages and use them as pocket cards.

I’ve included an ABC anchor chart as well as 26 traceable flashcards, with a cover, so students can make an Itty Bitty booklet.

Make extra sets, run them off on a different color, laminate and turn them into Memory Match Concentration games.

Play “I Have; Who Has?” by passing out the cards and asking:  “I have A. Who has B?” ˆ

Sprinkle the cards on the floor and have students sequence them, while singing the ABC song.

For a quick center activity, have students trace the upper and lowercase letters on these bookmarks.  To reinforce vowels, have children trace them in a different color.

Students glue the strips to a piece of construction paper. One side has uppercase letters, the other side lowercase.

Add a bit more pizzazz by punching a cut out or gluing a school photo to the bottom.

Do you need a quick and easy ABC recording sheet when you do assessments? Are you looking for an upper and lowercase alphabet certificate of praise to pass out to your students?

I designed both!

I hope you find these activities helpful and that your last days with your little ones are letter perfect!

Feel free to PIN away to help pass on anything you think is helpful to others.

I hope you can buzz on over tomorrow for more end-of-the-year fun!

Do you have an ABC activity you'd like to share?
