Talk About Growing Flowers and Plant Some Flowers

Before class prepare two potted flowers. Use clear plastic cups so that the children can see the soil. In one cup place good soil and a healthy plant, fill the other cup up with rocks and just a little bit of soil. Plant a flower, but let it die. In class show the children the two flowers and talk about how the one flower seems to be dying and the other is healthy. Ask them why they think the flower is dying?

 

 

Plant Seeds in a Cup

Bring in cups, potting soil, seeds, and water. Show the children how to sow the seeds. Make sure they know what the word "sow" means. You can also have them decorate their cups with stickers or markers and the Bible verse. You can also add rocks to your potting soil before class and have the children remove the rocks before putting the soil in their cups.

 

 

Play "Be Doers" Game

Be a Doer Card Game

 

1. Print out the "Be a Doer" cards before class and cut them apart. (Printable patterns available to members on The Resource Room.)

2. The object of this game is to be the first person to collect three cards.

3 Tell your students that they will each have a turn to pick a card. They can decide if they want to "be a doer" and do what is on the card, or pass it to the next person.

4. If a child does what is on the card, he gets to keep the card. If he doesn't want to do what is on the card, he can pass it to the next student. If the student who the first child passed it to doesn't want to do what is on the card, that student can also pass it to the next person. It can go all the way around the room until it comes back to the child who picked the card in the first place. If the card goes all the way around, the first child gets to pick another card and decide if he wants to do what is on the card.

Once a child has been a "doer", the child next in line gets to pick a card.

5. If the children ask what the winner gets, tell them they get to kiss Rocky and be the first one to eat dirt. (See dirt cups below.)

3. Show the children the petals and explain that this project will help them to remember to be "doers".

Learn a Rhyme

Every time you say "itty-bitty seed" make your voice real squeaky like a mouse's. Every time you say "great big seeds" make your voice go real deep.

The Hand Motions Are:

Itty-bitty - put your fingers together real close

Great big seeds - make your arms a circle out in front of you.

Scattered all around - toss your hands to the right and left

Some in the rows - toss your hands out

Some in the weeds - hold your hands over your shoulders

 

 

Seeds Verse 1:

The word of God is like itty-bitty seeds
Scattered all around

The word of God is like itty-bitty seeds
Scattered all around

You've got some in the rows, some in the weeds,
But everywhere you look, you got itty-bitty seeds

The word of God is like itty-bitty seeds
Scattered all around

 

Seeds Verse 2:

The word of God is like great big seeds
Scattered all around

The word of God is like great big seeds
Scattered all around

You got some in the rows, some in the weeds,
But everywhere you look you got great big seeds

The word of God is like great big seeds
Scattered all around
