Chrysanthemum Packet


10 pages. Common Core State Standards: RI.K.5, RI.K.6, RI.K.9, RI.K.10, RL.K.2, RL.K.3, RL.K.6, RL.K.9, L.K.1d, RI.1.9, RL.1.2, RL.1.3

A variety of fun reading and writing activities to go along with Kevin Henke's Chrysanthemum, that will help reinforce the above Common Core State Standards.  This is also a great story to read if you're doing the "Fill a Bucket" program in your school.

Packet includes:

  • A beginning-middle-end story map that will help students retell Chrysanthemum
  • A "favorite part" retelling "writing prompt" bookmark
  • A compare and contrast Venn diagram with Hooway for Wodney Wat
  • Character, Setting and Event cards. (Laminate, put magnets on the back and put them up on your white board. Write down students' answers under the cards.)
  • Crumple "sorry" picture experiment, to show that "Sticks and stones may break your bones, and names DO harm you!"
  • Question Words activity sheet, reinforcing the who, what, why, when, where, how words.
  • Cover of book to label book parts + review author and illustrator
