Hi everyone! I am so excited to share with you all my newest Fairy Tale Unit… The Little Red Hen.
I absolutely LOVE reading fairy tales to my students and I know how much they look forward to reading and learning about them!
A wonderful thing about fairy tales is that they are packed with so many different story elements and skills to learn. They allow for students to really dive deep into the stories, gain a lot of understanding of the stories, and learn so many skills at the same time!
I love creating units that include lots of hands-on, interactive activities and The Little Red Hen was the perfect fairy tale to do just that!
This unit is PACKED with different activities that include story elements, reading responses, anchor charts, crafts, math activities, games, writing activities, how to activities, and so much more!!
I wanted to make this unit available for many different levels of students. I have included lots of different writing options at different levels for you to be able to differentiate in your class if needed.
There are lots of amazing versions of ‘The Little Red Hen’. This unit focuses on and includes activities for 2 versions that you can choose from: ‘The Little Red Hen’ by Lucinda McQueen OR ‘The Little Red Hen’ by Paul Galdone.
This unit also has activities that go along with ‘The Little Red Hen Makes a Pizza’ by Philemon Sturges.
Here is a closer look at some of the activities included in The Little Red Hen Unit:
