The Little Red Hen

This week we started a fairy tales unit. Our first story was The Little Red Hen. We made an animal sounds book. Jack was able to figure out most of the sounds on his own from the beginning sounds.

This was his painting of wheat; we added the cut and paste Little Red Hen instead of doing it separately.

Yesterday we made bread. Jack loved kneading the dough!

The finished bread! We also used the bread-making cards from Montessori for Everyone.

Jack got some scissor practice with this story sequencing activity.

I found this puzzle on clearance this week at Target. With all of the barnyard animals, it went along great with the story!

Wow, Jack did a really good job with his scissors. Joseph is finally getting that under control. Don't know if it was just one of those things that took him longer or if it's because he's left handed. :)
