In class we read the book "Chrysanthemum" by Kevin Henkes. Students explored their name and how many letters it had. They were then tasked to find out more about their fellow classmates
The handout also features the poem, "Every Body Has a Name" by Jean Warren.
This was used during our Unit of Inquiry based around identity - "Personal Identity is shaped by family and experience".
The unit was at the beginning of the year, so was an ideal way for students to get to know more information about each other.
UOI focus on open-minded, respect and empathy.
