After I read the story to my kiddos, we talked about character traits. First, I used myself as the character for my kiddos to list as many character traits as they could come up with. It was a learning moment for us all. Next, we listed all the character traits for Chrysanthemum. Then, my class had to create a flower with all the petals being a character trait for Chrysanthemum. They also had to complete a sentence and explain how they knew that Chrysanthemum had that character trait. It was a great day for learning!!
