“A Seed is Sleepy” Story Explorers pre-k book club

seed is sleepy

We began our discussion talking about seeds and how they are baby plants. They need sun, water, and dirt to grow. We talked about how some animals eat seeds because they are very nutritious. Even people eat seeds! I passed out sunflower and pumpkin seeds for the kids to eat.

We then read A Seed is Sleepy by Dianna Hutts Aston and Sylvia Long.

Sun in the Sky
(tune of Skip to my Lou)
Sun in the sky; shine, shine, shine.
Sun in the sky; shine, shine, shine.
Sun in the sky; shine, shine, shine.
Help me with my garden.
Rain from the clouds, drip, drip, drip.
Seeds in the dirt, grow, grow, grow.

We wrote our names or drew pictures with glue and then poured bird seed over the glue. When it dried, we shook off the excess seeds to see our picture.

We then planted seed packets of both flowers and vegetables into compostable pots and watered them. The kids took the planted seeds home.
