Do you read Kevin Henkes’ story “Chrysanthemum”? (It’s a personal favorite of mine.)

If so, I think you’ll enjoy this Chrysanthemum-themed glyph activity.

No matter what grade I taught, my students LOVED making glyphs.

They are a quick, easy and interesting way to practice and assess listening and following directions.

Since this is one of my report card standards, glyphs also provide a "hard copy" to use as proof that a child does or doesn't.

Completed projects make a wonderful back to school bulletin board, as each one will be different!

I’ve provided two, Chrysanthemum-themed glyph posters to use for the center of your display.

Glyphs are also an interesting way to get to know your students.

Afterwards, have children pick a partner, and try to guess which glyph is theirs by asking them a few key questions, which will narrow down the field.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a sweet school year filled with lots of memorable moments.
