Okay...I know I had this somewhere. I normally send home a questionnaire the first day of school for the students to complete with their parents about how their name was chosen. Now, of course, I can't find it. I'm moving schools this year so everything is in boxes and such....

Anyone wanna help a poor teacher out who's about to lose her mind? <!--giggle-->

You know what?

I did that, one time, and never again. I had a parent so irate that I would ask such a personal question. I was too afraid to ever ask anyone again. I love the idea and would have the children look up the meaning of their name in a baby book too. The librarian thought I must have been nuts checking out every book they had on baby names!
Good Luck, sorry I can't be of more help.

chrysanthamum

I used that survey once. It was from Mailbox, and it had a picture of Chrysanthamum on the side to be used with Kevin Henkes book. Maybe you can google it or look into Mailbox stuff. Hope that helps. I'd send mine, but I have no idea where mine is either, I've moved into 4 classrooms 4 years in a row! Everything I have is lost-including my mind!!

Name interview

I have mine at school too. There were just a couple of questions something like this:
How did you choose my name? Was it hard naming me? Am I named after anyone? Is so who?

*However, I have not used it the last 2 years since I have more and more students who are living with grandparents, aunts, etc.

Instead, we just listen to anyone who wants to share their name stories after reading Chrysanthemum.
