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.
