Hand-under-hand. Put your hand under theirs. Put theirs on top. There are many reasons this is a more effective way to assist students.
Mikayla’s Voice has greatly missed school-based program delivery, but has been using our time at home to build our “bookshelf.” This website was NOT designed as a replacement for our inclusive programming during school closures. Rather, it has always been our plan to create a collection of valuable enrichment lessons as a complement to our programming to assist teachers, parents, and students continue the conversation about inclusion, kindness, and friendship in their schools and homes. Children need social and emotional support now more than ever, but these lessons are written for continued use well beyond quarantine. As such, hand under hand may not be recommended when students first return to school. Please always follow current CDC guidelines.
