1-2-3 Come Do Some Kissing Hand Activities With Me
Since the first Kissing Hand Activity Packet was such a huge success, I decided to make another packet designed specifically around Common Core State Standards.
This packet will reinforce: Common Core State Standards: RI.K5,RI.K6,RI.K9,RI.K10,RL.K2, RL.K3,RL.K6, L.K1d, RI.1.9, RL.1.2, RL.1.3
It has a variety of fun reading and writing activities to go along with Audrey Penn's adorable story The Kissing Hand, about a little raccoon who doesn’t want to go to school. This is one of my all-time favorite back to school books.
This packet, is the first in a series of quick and easy common core packets, where I use kiddie lit to teach standards. I'll be posting and blogging about these FREEBIES for the next few days.
The Kissing Hand Packet includes:

Comparing Jellybeans With A Venn Diagram
If you’re looking for another jellybean activity, try this quick and easy candy Venn diagram.
I got the paper plate Venn diagram idea from Deanna Johnston at her cute “Primary Punch” blog and liked it so much I pinned it months ago.

I thought I’d try it out for a jellybean and conversational heart comparison - contrast, as I use candy a lot in the classroom, for all sorts of activities and math centers.
Candy is pretty unforgettable for children, so you’ll have no problem having them remember your past activities.
After I got it done, I was so pleased with the results, that I whipped a Venn diagram off for comparing the other candy, that I doled out during the other holidays: candy corn from October and peppermint candy canes in December.
This turned into a 15-page packet entitled Venn Candy! You can either use paper plates and have students cut and glue the clipart and headers, or use the normal Venn diagram templates.
I’ve made some for comparing each type of candy with each other as well as provided a blankVenn diagram template for you to dream up whatever else inspires you!
