Fantastic Primary Activities Inspired by “The Bad Seed”

After a very cold and snowy winter, Spring is right around the corner. 

Are you as excited as I am?

One of my favorite things about Spring is all the wonderfully fun activities I have planned for my Kindergarten class. 

This year I have been focusing on incorporating read aloud into our activities. For example, “The Kissing Hand,” “5 Little Pumpkins,” “Sneezy the Snowman,” to name a few.

Well, this Spring I wanted to focus on something that addressed social and emotional health as well as introduced my kids to a Seed. 

This is because I have a great science experiment with seeds that I will be sharing later in this post.

That’s when I decided to focus my activities around the book “The Bad Seed.”

“The Bad Seed” is a very cute book about a seed that is “bad” who tries his best to become a “good” seed.

This is perfect for reviewing expectations in the classroom and I love the message that no one is a “bad seed.” We can all choose to make good choices if we try.

But, if you have read any of my other blog posts, you know that I don’t let stories end there. 

In this post, I am going to share some great activities to do with your students that are perfect for this book. 

Whether you are in person, hybrid, or teaching virtually (like I am) these activities are great for primary students. Regardless of what learning may look like.

So let’s go ahead and get started!
