Plants Feed Me

What We Read:

Plants Feed Me by Lizzy Rockwell

Plants Feed Me is a cute, informative book about all the different plants and plant parts we eat. It’s a great introduction to how plants grow and how we use them in our everyday lives.

Plant a Kiss by Amy Krouse Rosenthal & Peter H. Reynolds

Plant a Kiss is about a little girl who, as you might expect, plants a kiss. She cares for it, waits for it to grow, and decides to share it with her friends and everyone she meets.

What We Said:

“My Hands”

“Touch Your Nose”

What We Did:

We danced again! This time we broke out the rhythm sticks and listened to “Tap Your Sticks” by Hap Palmer, then we put our sticks away and ended with “Spaghetti Legs” by Jim Gill.

What We Made Planted:

We planted grass today! I passed out plastic cups and markers for the kids to decorate their cups with. I explained to the kids that because the markers were washable, the color would wear off, but they could always color it again. I went around with a permanent marker and drew smiley faces on the cups.

Once we were done coloring and decorating, we gathered around a table and took turns scooping potting soil in our cups until they were about half full. Then everybody added a pinch of grass seed, and I poured a little water to get the soil wet. Everybody took their planted grass home in a paper bag.
