||Natalia Apariz, teacher of English as a second language, sent this note on May 26, 2015 – Once again, I am writing to you from Pontevedra (Spain) to send you the drawings my second graders created after listening to your fabulous One Seed story. As every year, they have fallen in love at first sight with the story and the song. Every May my classroom is filled with the catchy sound of the One Seed song; and the drawings of One Seed growing in the desert are displayed on the walls. Also, this year, in my drama lessons I will perform the story with my students. They are excited with the idea of becoming a seed, so I have a difficult decision to make…who will be the ONE SEED? Castings are starting soon! I know that many students all over the world dream of seeing their drawings in the One Seed art gallery so I am just sending some because all of them want to be the one. On behalf of my students I want to thank you for this fantastic story that talks about self-determination and the importance of following one’s dreams, no matter how hard they are.

I am back again to invite you for a new set of educational games that are fun and helpful to improve your knowledge about plants.
These activities are fun to do and very helpful for you to revise the basic concepts of this unit of inquirí such as germination, photosynthesis, parts of the plant, plants we eat, flowers …and so on.
Let’start and good luck!
As you know, vocabulary is very important to understand science lessons so, I would like you to revise some new words that we learning in class. Also, you will find them very helpful to understand the photosynthesis process.
These days we have been reading the One seed story in class. This is a story about a seed which was determined to settle down and grow in the desert. The other seeds just told that this was unheard and it was impossible.
It is a story about courage, hope, perseverance, being different, and making a difference. It encourages discussion on everything from how to grow a garden, to inventors, to having ideas, to having the courage to do something you didn’t think you could do, to the fact that just about everything in this world comes from a seed. And it’s a fun story!
After reading the story they have made these fantastic drawings.
You can see the pics here.
This is the video where you can learn about the different parts of the plant.
This game is for you to revise the parts of the flower.
This interesting video is fun to revise the things you already know about how seeds grow. You can watch it again and again and have some fun.
Yesterday, we planted some seeds and we hope to see them grow. First we got some pots, then we put some dirt in the pots, next we planted the pea seeds and finally, we watered them. We put the pots in the sun and in some days the seeds will germinate.
Also, our second graders took some seeds home to start their own orchard, we are looking forward to seeing their plants grow.
Meanwhile, you can see some nice pics.
These are the activities we have seen in class these days. I know you like them so much and they are fun to do.
