Book:  Chrysanthemum - Author:  Kevin Henkes  Ages 4-8 

A great book to prepare children for their first day of school, learn to write their very special name.  This book also celebrates the contributions of an important community helper:  the teacher. 
  • These activities help children learn to write their name and also to appreciate that all names are very special.
  • After reading and discussing the book, the children can assemble a printable mouse craft or decorate and cut-out a mouse coloring page image to make a puppet.  Children will give their mouse a special name.  Write the special name on the back of the craft or coloring page puppet.
  • Chrysanthemum is the name of a beautiful flower. It is the birthday flower for the month of November.  View real images and information about this flower. Print this coloring page and practice tracing November.  Idea:  Discover your children's special birthday flower and practice learning the months of the year.
