Character in Action


The class read, “The Tiny Seed,” by Eric Carle, the story of a sunflower that grows from a tiny seed into maturity. The seed had to face and overcome many challenging obstacles before growing into a beautiful sunflower. The class discussed all of the challenging obstacles they faced this year and, because they persevered and helped each other, they are now bright, independent, and dynamic preschoolers ready to soar off into kindergarten! Following the lesson, each child planted their own tiny seeds which they will help to grow into beautiful flowers by caring for them each day.
