We only had pea seeds to plant today. I have been talking about the seeds of things for quite some time during snack. Apple seeds are found hiding within the core, as well as avocados, mandarins, grapefruit and pomelos. When I opened the package of pea seeds everyone understood what they were. We dug a trench then carefully placed them in the dirt. We talked about giving each seed space for growing, then we covered them up.
"Bye bye peas!" EK said and so on everyone was saying bye as we tucked the seeds into their dirt beds.
"See you soon! They are going to grow into plants!" I explained and we walked away.
These connections are important as we begin observations in your yard. Flowers are starting to bloom and the children have already noticed the plants growing leaf buds.
