Here are two Social Emotional Lessons that are based on the read aloud, Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes. Both lesson plans are detailed with standards, objectives, and goals. The anticipatory set, materials and step by step procedure is all written out as well as some questions to ask your students. These two lessons can be done on two different days either back to back or throughout the same week. This can be done in the beginning of the school year to ensure that students will be kind to others and that we value positive compliments from our peers. Its a great lesson to show how negative compliments can hurt us and leave a mark. The background of the author is included and the literature elements. This is a great author to choose for an author study!
