"I do this lesson every year, but never had this poem. It will be a good addition! (With Chrysanthemum!)"

"It's Hard to Fix a Wrinkled Heart" Activity to Go with Book, Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes

Wrinkled Heart activity to talk about bullying - good activity for No Name Calling Week

I love using this book... here is an activity to go along w/ it!

This is a recipe you would not want to be without in your life

What IS bullying?

Glitter Germs! Put it on the counselor's hands, and then have everyone, including the counselor, shake hands with everyone. Notice how the "germs" spread!...A variation is using this idea to demonstrate how your positive or negative attitude can spread. Use with the lesson on bullying too.

Doing this next year!

LOVE!!!! Give each student a puzzle piece to decorate... keeping the edges intact so it can be re-assembled. Use for a lesson in acceptance... how each individual piece is beautiful on its own. But what a masterpiece you get when you put them all together! Beginning of the year for team building!

EGGScellent Diversity Lesson.

I'm going to post this in my room for next year!


Our Chrysanthemum Activity - Read the book and pass around the cut out heart, everytime Chrysanthemum is bullied students crinkle the heart. Afterwards, we pin on our band-aids and poem!
