by Kevin Henkes, is one of my all-time favorite back to school
It’s perfect for a variety of ages, and especially wonderful as an introduction to name activities
, as well as discussions about teasing, bullying
and “filling buckets”
Because I like to mix math with literacy
, I designed the Chrysanthemum Name Comparison Math Craftivity
, where students compare
their name with Chrysanthemum’s.
I’ve included a simple PK version
which can be done as a whole group, with an older elementary buddy, or done as homework with the assistance of a parent.
There’s also a template suitable for kindergarten, 1st and 2nd
, which involves some easy math
, where students can show how they figured out their answer. (See PREVIEW).
Use the vowel, consonants
and syllable posters
to help explain things, then hang up for students to refer to.
These can also be used as part of your display, as completed projects make an adorable bulletin board
, or hung as a border on a hallway wall.
I’ve included 2 “Mixing Math & Literacy”
display posters for this as well.
There are 10 border options
to choose from. Give your students a choice, or run off 2-3 of each of the worksheets
so you have a nice variety in your display.
Girls can add a bow
to their mouse, and boys can opt to leave it off if they want.
For an added splash of color
, mount the worksheet on a variety of colors of construction paper before students glue their mouse head to the top.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a fun-tastic fall.
