I love this book! One year I based my whole classroom on this book. In the story, the principal gives Mrs. Spritzer a packet of seeds. Mrs. Spritzer gets everything ready and plants her “seeds”. Then she waters them. Feeds them and makes sure they get plenty of sun She watches them grow! Of course, the packet of seeds is her class list and the seeds are her students It is a beautifully written book!
My classroom turned into a garden and my students became little seeds/flowers. Not only did I love it, but the kids loved it too and surprisingly, so did the parents. Sadly to say, I lost both of my parents withing the first two in a half months of that year and it turned out to be my last year of teaching. I can’t even begin to tell you how many wonderful things were given to me that year around the idea of Mrs. Elstad’s Little Seeds! It was a year of unbelievable sadness, but joy at the thoughtfulness of wonderful, caring parents.
Maybe you would like to make a garden with your “little seeds”!
