Hands are not for Hitting
About this deal
I don't like focusing on what I don't want my toddler to do, so ignore the parts about hitting and just read what hands are for and act it out with my 18 months old son. They enjoy seeing and trying to do some of the funny things the children do in the illustrations of the book.
Repetition of the same book allows children a chance to really learn the story – it becomes their story by the end of the week!It’s never too soon for children to learn that violence is never okay, hands can do many good things, and everyone is capable of positive, loving actions.
While reading the story, demonstrate the suggestions throughout the book: handshaking, clapping, blowing kisses, pointing, etc.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.
The children can also demonstrate what their hands can do and you can take photographs of the children in action. Twinkl also have a number of resources that can be used to support student through common social situations that they may find themselves in. At the end of the story there are many supplemental ideas for parents and teachers to support the reading of this story and to reinforce children’s understanding of using hands in an appropriate manner.As a freelance illustrator and designer, Marieka focuses her work on books and other materials for children, teens, parents, and teachers. loves embracing all the positive things hands can do and also enjoys "teaching" his sister about the message. Children hear about how others feeling and emotions are effected when hands are used inappropriately.
