Added to cart As a former first grade teacher, teaching children to read is one of my greatest passions! However, the information shared below is general information that is beneficial for children of all ages, whether your child is ready to read or not. The information you will find here is simply a guide to help you see how each of the components of reading fit together!
In the story of Chrysanthemum let children make their names out of Chrysanthemun petals of different colors. Students can discuss how all names are differernt. They can share how they got their name and who they might be named after.
Students can also share why teasing others is not a good thing to do. The children decorate their names and we put a bow on them I use stick on bows.
The children have a lot of fun seeing how fancy they can make their name. I then gave each student a nametag and let them write their chosen name and decorate the nametag.
The children then put the nametags on and those were the names we went by for the rest of the day. I did this activity with a first grade class and they loved it! Write the following prompt on a sheet of paper. Have child fill in their name and color of an item that they can carry their stuff.
Have them draw their container on the top part of the paper. Bound all the pages and place in the library or send home with a student at a time and share your wonderful authors and illustrators with their parents.
For reading, I had the children change the ending of the story I called it a parade of names I gave all of my students a copy of a puzzle or a small 16 piece white puzzle. They were asked to write their name on the small puzzle or the paper puzzle and decorate it. Then they had to share their puzzle all the piece were in a zip lock baggie with a friend.
The friend had to put the puzzle pieces together to spell out their friends name. My class enjoyed these activities.
Sabrina Beg Clermont, Florida This book is part of my back to school unit. First, we use it to discuss treating everyone kindly and not making fun of others.
Then we discuss the name Chrysanthemum and how special it is. I tell the students I have a very special name inside of a ziploc bag for them.
I give the children a bag that has his or her own name cut up and they unscramble the letters to make their own name. For those who need help unscrambling the letters I help them match it to their desk nameplate so that they see the special name is theirs.
Also, to make sure I give each child the right bag, I code them with numbers that match their name. Then the students glue the letters their name to a piece of white construction paper and make self-portraits.SCRIPTS AND MATERIALS General Survey.
