The Little Red Hen is one of our favorite traditional stories. Here are lesson plans for your Little Red Hen week (or weeks). Reading, writing, math, crafts, and science lessons make this easy for teachers and fun for your students. I even whipped up a little FREE file for you too!
So many Little Red Hen Books! Here are the three that are featured in our Little Red Hen Unit!
Here are a few other versions that were recommended!
- Cook-a-Doodle-Doo! by Janet Stevens
This cute Little Red Hen craft is not just a pretty face…
She keeps the three retell strips in her apron!
How-To Make a Pizza Writing
We love the Little Red Hen Makes a Pizza… so we included a little how-to writing.
I found this cute tutorial on how to make chef hats! You can read more about how to make them on Andersruff.
Science, Math, and Literacy Activities Too!
We have included math activities that are easy to prep!
And math centers that are differentiated (so there is a kindergarten and 1st grade version).
The same is true for these literacy centers. They are also differentiated. (Kindergarten: Beginning Sounds, First Grade: CVC words).
Here are my lesson plans for the week. Click on the image below to download a PDF version of my plans.
