We have been thrilled to welcome the warmer weather with some fun planting and gardening activities. Recently, we planted our own fruits, herbs, and vegetables! We began our planting journey by identifying the parts of a plant. We then anxiously awaited the growth of our plants, and we certainly didn’t have to wait long. Along with our adventures in the garden, we brought the planting fun into the classroom with this free Planting with Kids Writing Activity!

Planting with Kids Writing Activity

For our introduction to gardening, we began with planting our seed pods. (We used a Miracle-Gro Gro-ables Kit, which unfortunately is no longer available, but this will still be fun no matter how you grow your plants!) My kids were so excited to see how quickly our plants grew!

While we watched them grow, we had a blast learning all about plants’ structures and what they need.

We built up our vocabulary and understanding of plant parts by drawing our seedlings and labeling them. This was a fun activity to do because each child’s drawing looked so unique!

Plant Parts and Needs Writing Center

When we were done drawing our pictures, I added this “Write It!” activity to our writing centers. The kids loved the colorful picture cards and were able to recognize all of the plant parts and needs!

They picked up a card that showed either a part of a plant or something a plant needs to grow and survive. Then they looked for the matching picture on the recording sheet and wrote the word in the box.

We also added this plant-themed "Write It!" activity to our writing center.

Write the Room Activity

This is also a fun “Write the Room” activity if you wish to get your kids up and moving!

Simply place the cards on the walls, or anywhere around the room, and have your kids “hunt” for them and complete the recording sheet using a clipboard.

Teacher Tip: Give your students fun writing tools like skinny markers or colored pencils to add an extra layer of fun!

Have the kids search the room for the word cards and complete the recording sheet using a clipboard.

However you choose to use this engaging and versatile Planting with Kids Writing Activity, it is sure to be a hit with you and your kiddos!

  1. Thank you for the free printable, but I wanted you to know the root picture is in wrong. It’s covering the word.

    1. Hi Andrea,
      Thanks for reaching out!
      We’ve looked closer at the printable and it prints okay on our end. There might be an issue with the version of PDF reader that you have installed. It’s likely that it needs to be updated.
      Please let us know if we can help with anything else?
