Preschool Literature Unit – The Small Seed

I have been creating Kindergarten Literature Units for several years and today I have our very first PRESCHOOL Literature Unit! While many of our K units can be used for preschoolers, these new units will be specifically for kids who are at the preschool stage! What exactly is that? It’s a blurry line, to be honest. Most kids are 3-4 during preschool and 5-6 during Kindergarten, but that does not apply to all children, especially with the freedom homeschool brings!

Our very first Preschool Literature Unit is based on the book The Small Seed from Little Scholastic, written by, Judith Nicholls.

Set the stage for your unit by gathering extra books and some toys! It helps to draw your child in and get her/him excited about your learning time together.


Don’t have a lot of toys and books to go along with this book? Ask friends, go to the library, or buy some things you think might be a good long term investment for your homeschool! Be sure to purchase the book The Small Seed, or check it out from your library. In addition to the main book, I recommend adding in other fun GARDEN books to bring the theme alive!

Looking for more ideas for a Flowers & Plants theme? Check out our flowers & plants theme idea page here, filled with more free printables!

There are over 20 activities to keep your Preschooler engaged for quite a while! Many tots or Kindergartners will also enjoy this set! The main focus is Preschool, but that isn’t exclusive! Below you can see a collage of all the printables included! Click each image to enlarge!

The Small Seed from Little Scholastic is an interactive rhyming touch-and-feel nature book.  Feel the seed as it grows roots, a shoot, and a stem, then open out the last page to see a beautiful new flower.

The printables were created to go along with the story as you will see in the photos below! Connecting your activities to a book is such a great way to weave a literacy-rich learning environment into your homeschool in such a natural and fun way!

In all of our Literature Units, I include photo cards, comprehension questions, and story-retelling printables. In this unit you’ll also find 3-part cards, listen and match {images to descriptive sentences}, sunflower matching {visual discrimination}, cut & glue, sorting plants and animals, and tracing.

Explore COLORS  & SHAPES with these fun activities!
