Encourage new discoveries while exploring seeds in your classroom

I don’t think I realized how many different kinds of seeds there are to explore in the fall until Mrs. T shared with us an entire collection of seeds last week…

Mrs. T. set our discovery table up with a wonderful collection of all types of seeds for the children to explore. As they walked into our outdoor classroom, the children were able to get right to work…

Exploring a Variety of Seeds

I would love to tell you the names of all the different types of seeds but that is simply not my expertise. I think my students recognized the seeds better than I did…

Using Real Investigative Tools

The children used magnifying glasses to take a closer look at the seeds and they used their hands and tweezer to pull the seeds out of the pods or plants to take an even closer look at them…

Building Fine Motor Skills

The children even used the larger tweezers to try and crack open a few peanuts (we have no peanut allergies in our group of kids by the way)…

Mrs. T. had some of the seeds she had collected labeled and set out in petri dishes for the children to open up and freely explore as well…

Some of the children placed the seeds they pulled off plants into our divided tray that Mrs. Courtney set out for us as part of their exploration…

Making new Discoveries

There was always someone stopping by to examine and investigate the seeds and plants as long as we had the materials out on the discovery table for the children to explore…

Perhaps you can take a look around and see what sort of seeds you can find this fall – you might be surprised to find that there are so many all around…

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
