The Heart in Your Hand

Sometimes the first we days settling into school can be a little bumpy. Things have the potential to be a little bumpier than usual this year with COVID19 and the fact that most schools will be limiting what can be brought to-and-from home. So, comforters like a special toy or a teddy probably won’t be an option this year, but that doesn’t mean your child can’t have a special comforter to hand!


Enter, The Heart in Your Hand...


Draw a little heart on your hand and your child’s hand and let them know that if you press it, they’ll feel it too. I used this little trick with Junior Infants and Senior class pupils – you would be surprised how effective it can be.


As I always say, there is a poem for everything – here’s mine for the helping heart.


A direct line to parents, guardians and loved ones – what more do you need?
