Product Description
Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes is the story of a little girl who faces teasing over her name, but learns just how special it makes her in the end. This is a great book to use at any time during the school year, but is often used at the beginning of the year.
This packet includes the following:

Chrysanthemum alphabet review activity
Students will find the letters of their first and last names in the alphabet, count the number of letters their names contain, and compare the amount of letters in their name with the remaining letters of the alphabet.

Venn diagram to compare letters in students names
This is a partner activity to compare/contrast students' names. The students will complete a venn diagram by placing the letters from their name in the appropriate spot on the venn diagram.

Autograph hunt activity
Students will get the autograph of each friend in the class and count the number of letters in each childs' name.

Class book: A Rose By Any Other Name, Just Wouldn't Be the Same
Students will write and decorate their name at school on the class book page. Then send it home with the parent letter to have their parents help them write the story of their name. Use the title page as a cover for your class book.

The Great Name Graph
Students will graph the number of letters in the names of characters as well as their own name.
