StoryTime: This week the theme was seasons and the letter was S. Robin read I Spy Little Bunnies. Doris read If You Plant a Seed, Little Tree, and Such a Little Mouse. Doris and the children talked about the four seasons and how the weather is dfferent as the seasons change. In the book, If You Plant a Seed, we walked about planting seeds and how the seeds become the fruit or vegetable you plant. The book also includes the idea of planting a seed of selfishness making everything become unhappy and selfish; while sowing seeds of kindness, grows and creates kindness all around you. The craft was a seasonal tree that was divided into four sections to represent each of the four seasons and what the tree looks like in each season.
