Series 4, Episode 8: A Little Seed
Anne Belcher from Branch Into Music shares a lovely little springtime poem and finger-play that teaches the process of a seed’s transformation into a flower. Children are encouraged to move their hands and fingers to represent each line of the verse. This is a great activity to encourage the development of fine motor skills.
The poem is called "A Little Seed" (sometimes referred to as "May Time Magic") and is by children's author, Mabel Watts. It reads like this:
A little seed for me to sow.
A little earth so it can grow.
A little hole. A little pat.
A little wish and that is that.
A little sun.
A little shower.
A little while ...
And then, a flower!
