Inspired by the book Plant A Kiss (written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds) this printable PDF by Peter provides an easy-to-assemble template for a seed packet. Simply print, cut out, and assemble — and don’t forget to seal it with a kiss!
As the school year transitions into spring, think in terms of “planting it forward.” Start sowing seeds for your students — a love of writing, a fascination with math, a curiosity about science, a passion for vocabulary, global thinking, an appreciation for social studies…
What creative activities do you have planned for spring this year?
January is a perfect time to encourage students to commit to goals for the year ahead!
Download these goal cards by Peter H. Reynolds, cut them out, and distribute them to your class. Ask each student to write one important goal for the year ahead and sign it as part of his or her commitment to working towards that goal. Post the cards on a bulletin board or classroom wall and check in with students from time to time to see what progress they have made. A little encouragement and a few reminders will go a long way!

So cool! We were blown away by these photos of International Dot Day festivities in Antarctica from educator and researcher Jean Pennycook, who studies Adélie Penguins. Dot Day, an unofficial celebration of creativity based on Peter H. Reynolds’ award-winning book The Dot, has now officially been celebrated on all SEVEN continents! Thanks to Lorraine Leo, Terry Shay, Bill Norris, and Janet Reynolds for “connecting the dots” and getting The Dot down to Ross Island for this tux-only event.
