End With a Sunflower Song
Engage your preschoolers with a simple song that teaches growth. The children can hold their paper plate sunflower craft as a prop while singing. Use the tune: I'm a Little Teapot and dramatize the actions while singing.
I'm a little sunflower, I'm so small (sit cross-legged on the floor)
Soil, sun and water make me tall. (pat the floor with the word soil, with sun round your arms overhead, and with the word water, pretend to sprinkle the soil wiggling the fingers)
When I get all grown-up, you will see, (sit up on knees, then begin to stand)
That I'm as big as I can be! (stand tall with arms stretched up high)
