Plant Your Name with Seeds
Kindergarteners spend hours and hours reading, writing, and exploring the sounds in their own names, and in those of their classmates. Teachers love to use names to help reinforce key skills in early reading instruction...and parents can help!
Here's a delightful early reading activity for kindergarteners that manages to blend in some science instruction, too. If all goes well, it's even edible!
What You Need:
- Aluminum baking or roasting tray, preferably at least 3” deep by 14” long
- Sand (a bit from the sandbox will work just great)
- Potting soil
- Packet of fast-growing seeds (we prefer early red globe radishes)
