Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes is the perfect book for the first few weeks of school. I love using this story to guide my students as they learn to recognize and appreciate each other’s unique qualities. It is also the perfect avenue to discuss feelings, teasing, and getting along with new classmates.
This cute little craft and writing activity would make an adorable bulletin board! Enjoy!
