A big hit has been Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes. My kiddos LOVE this book, which just melts my heart because of the important message it sends. I am lucky enough to have both a SMARTboard in my classroom as well as a subscription to BookFlix. My district is really emphasizing incorporating technology as much as possible, so......we read Chrysanthemum on BookFlix and used the SMARTboard for one of our follow-up activities. I have to say, the SMARTboard is simply awesome. There is no other word to describe it.
Here are some scenes from our 2 days with Chrysanthemum:

If you haven't yet purchased my Chrysanthemum packet, check it by clicking on the picture below.
We also read Wemberly Worried and created a great craftivity I found at Mrs. T's blog. Check it out here.
On Tuesday, we will be reading Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse as a part of our Fun with Color Words unit. I'll blog about that unit next week.
Have a great weekend! Stay posted because I have two great NEW freebies coming soon!
