The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle

This a beautifully illustrated and thought provoking story written by Eric Carle. Listen to the story and it will spring board us into some lovely learning opporunities...

We hope that you enjoyed that!


Now, can you remember what happened to the Tiny Seed as it passed through the seasons? Have a go at recalling and retelling the story:

Can you talk about the events in the story?

Can you draw about what happened throughout the seasons?

Can you write a couple of sentences about what what happens to the seed throughout the seasons?


Here is a recording sheet to write and/or about what you recall...

Label a Flower Picture

  • Can you name the different parts of a flowering plant?
  • Can you use the story to help you?
  • Can you remember how we label a diagram?
  • Use the word bank to help you to put the correct words in the correct places.


You could also finish off the fact sentences using the word bank!

Below you will find two topic related reading comprehension activities. Some of the children will be ready to read this independently, some may need a little help to tackle some words and some would enjoy the adult reading it out loud to their child. The comprehension questions are a valuable part of the activity. It will enable the children to recall and understand what they have read and answer questions. The children can answer the questions verbally or they might like to answer the questions in simple written sentences using the adjoining sheet. See how you get on!
