Plant Diary & Apple Seed Drama Freebies

Do you remember our beanie babies? Sadly, not all of them survived their baggie homes.

So I bought some sunflower seeds. Everyone has planted a sunflower and some lucky kids have also planted their beanie babies.

We’re keeping track of their growth with a weekly plant diary.  You can click either image to grab.

Last week I did this drama activity with my kids that was quite amazing. I dictated the story below (A Tree Grows) while the children silently acted it out.

I paused throughout the narration and tapped several children on the shoulder. Those children said one word describing how they were feeling.

At the end of the drama I gave the children an opportunity to discuss their feelings and experiences as they pretended to be small apple seeds growing into trees.

I thought it was quite powerful and the kids LOVED it!

Click the image if you’d like the 3-page copy.  (BTW, this story has been in my file for probably 20 years and I have no idea who wrote it.)

Have a great evening!
