Dilemma…”The Kissing Hand”

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I had wanted to read the “The Kissing Hand” by Audrey Penn during the first two days of school…have one parent from each family send a cut-out of their hand for their child and then have the children make a cut-out of their hand to give to their parent/s. (For those of you who have not read this book, it is about a raccoon who does not want to go to school. The mother raccoon kisses her son’s hand to comfort him. When he misses her, he can “press [his] hand to [his] cheek and think ‘Mommy loves [me]’.”) I received my roster only to find out that 3 out of 13 of my children live with their grandparents; in all three situations the grandparents have custody of the student. How do I handle this situation? I come from a divorced family and have a better understanding of that type of home situation. This is something I am not familiar with and feel like I will be tip-toeing around all year. I want to be as sensitive as possible to each child. What do I do?
