    We're going to read CHRYSANTHUMUM by Kevin Henkes. I have a worksheet from THE MAILBOX '96 issue that has a number of questions about their name. I assign it as 'homework' to be completed with parents. There are questions such as: why did you choose my name? am I named after a relative? famous person? what does my name mean? what other names did you consider? etc. The children can also choose a name for themselves. They may choose their own name. Let them make a desk plate with their new name for the day. You can graph their names according to naming themselves after relatives,athletes, actors, singers, friends, flowers, etc.
