The Tiny Seed: U2W1 Poem and Activity

The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle is this week’s story in our Treasures Series (2nd Grade).  Carried from its flower home by the autumn wind, a tiny seed travels around the world. Its journey is perilous, and the reader learns the fate of fellow seeds: they can fall into the ocean, be burned by the sun, or be eaten by birds. Even those seeds that land and begin to grow are in danger of being stepped on or picked. Against the odds, however, this tiny seed survives to grow into a grand, beautiful flower, ready, in turn, to send its seeds out into the world on the wind.

Just a reminder that you can download any of the poems that are featured on this blog here:

I teach 4th grade and love this idea! On the state test the students have in April there is always poetry and our unit does not come until that time. I was wondering if there was a particular place from where you got the poems?
Thanks for a great idea! (My students are responding to the poems on Thursday mornings, also related to our story of the week.)
