Kevin Henke’ story “Chrysanthemum” is perfect for introducing name activities. It’s one of my favorite back to school books.

His story was the inspiration for this quick, easy and fun “print & go” name craftivity.

You simply need to choose the name slider that you would like your kids to create. There are 6 options.

I want my students practice choosing from the many options so I give them each one.

There are 4 sliders on a one-page pattern, so they are just the right size for little ones to hold and manipulate. This also conserves paper & ink.

I’ve included black and white patterns for kiddos to color, as well as templates in color, so that you can quickly and easily make examples to share.

Mounting them on construction papers adds a splash of color to the pieces and makes them stronger.

Run off the boxed “slider strips”, as well as the blank strips and trim.

Children color Chrysanthemum, then write their name on the “slider” strip, by writing a letter in each box.

If you have PK kiddos who don’t know how to write their name, you can have slider strips already written for them, or provide a name card for them to copy.

I’ve included 6 matching name cards if you’d like to use these.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a super-fun school year.

My favorite craft to go with Chrysanthemum (This is my favorite book! These were a hit with my students. You could make them a wonderful keepsake by laminating them.

This is one my favourite TPT purchases. I read Chrysanthemum at the beginning of each year and use the activities provided by this resource. I also create a Chrysanthemum bulletinboard. It is a hit with the kids. We are grateful!
