After reading Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes, your students can make a Chrysanthemum stick puppet and discuss the problems that Chrysanthemum had while starting school! They can also discuss ways to help the negative situations in the story and see how being kind to one another makes everyone feel better!
This FREEBIE is just a small part of my unit: Chrysanthemum- A Comprehension and Craftivity for Back to School, if you are interested!
