We read Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes. In the book her classmates are not very nice and tease her because her name is so long and she is named after a flower. Before she stated school she loved her name. With the support of a wonderful mom and dad and a very special teacher, by the end of the book she once again loved her unique and special name! We made friendship bracelets with cut up pieces of drinking straws as our beads. We also made scrap paper art. We squeezed a few other fine motor activities in by starting our morning with play dough and practiced writing our name at circle time.
REMINDER: No School on Monday!
