    Chrysanthemum

    “Chrysanthemum did not think her name was absolutely perfect. She knew it.”

    Chrysanthemum loves her name, but when she goes to school, the other children giggle. “Her name is so long,” said Jo. “It scarcely fits on her name tag,” said Rita, pointing.

    Poor Chrysanthemum; even though her father says her name is “precious and priceless and fascinating and winsome,” how will she persuade the other children in her class? Perhaps Mrs. Twinkle can come to the rescue!

    After watching this delightful video about a young girls wonderful name, the students wrote their names in "lights" using the Tuxpaint program. Using the "Magic" tools gave their names a very special look.
