Chrysanthemum






 
 Chrysanthemum is one of my favorite books to read at the beginning of the school year; the children love it as well!  After we read and discussed the story today, we talked about how many letters the student have in their names.  We made a class graph and talked about what we learned from the graph.
 This book is great for community building as well; we discussed kindness and respect for one another, and celebrating and appreciating differences, rather than name-calling and teasing.
