    Re: "Chrysanthemum" Name Graph
    Sharon

    Thanks for your interest! I love doing the graph with my own
    class, and think the kids would really enjoy seeing other
    kindergarten class graphs. My email is: sgilmore@sbesyes.org
    My school starts on August 20th, and I usually read
    Chrysanthemum withing the first two weeks of starting. I
    thought if we all planned on doing the story and making the
    graphs during the first week in September that would give
    classes that start later time to get involved. You can email
    me your email address and we can work out the details.
    Hopefully, we'll get a few more interested teachers.
