means to be diligent, and how hard work pays off in
the end.  We've included teach little ones this
important truth.

Everything you need for a fun Farm themed lesson plan.

Bake your own bread at school.  A bread
machine simplifies the process, and children
can measure out and add the ingredients
themselves.  Alternately, provide an assortment
of breads (wheat, white, rye, pita, tortillas, naan,
cinnamon swirl, sourdough, etc.) for the
children to sample, along with various
toppings, including jams, butter, Vegemite or
Marmite, cream cheese, or other favorites.

Tell the children that today's story is about...not a rooster,
but a hen.  (You might quickly explain that a rooster is a
"boy chicken" and a hen is a girl.)  Ask the children if they've
ever heard the story of The Little Red Hen.  Ask them if they
noticed the "r" word in the title.  When the children
recognize "red," from the title, take a few minutes to let the
children point out some red objects in the room around
them.  Then, read the story, (by Paul Galdone,) and briefly
discuss it.
Music & Movement:

Play song, "Little Red Hen" by Jackie
Cytrynbaum (
hear a sample)  Lead children in
acting out the words as they are sung.  For
information on ordering Fran's CD,
"Artichokes and Brussel Sprouts,"
click here.
Morning Circle:

Play a guessing game with the children to review the letter
"R."  Say, "I'm thinking of an animal, a very BIG animal
whose name begins with 'r.'"  Let the children make a few
guesses, then give more clues:  it is dark gray, has a big
horn on its nose, etc., until they guess "rhinoceros."  
Choose a few more "R" words and continue the guessing
game.  Try "run," "rainbow," "rock," "rabbit," "red," and
"rooster," for example.
Bread dough or play dough
Either thaw out frozen bread dough,
and cut it and roll, or provide play
dough with various accessories for
the children to cut, shape, pat, and
Set out a variety of measuring cups, spoons,
plates, bowls, sifters, and  pans.  Provide
uncooked rice, dry lentils, uncooked
couscous, and large dry red beans for the
children to measure, pour, and transfer.
Read: Bread, Bread, Bread by Ann Morris
(from the Around the World series.)  
Take some time with this book and discuss all the different
types of breads people around the world eat everyday.  
Highlight that bread is a fundamental part of the human
diet.  Explain that Jesus calls Himself "the bread of life."
Bible Verse Bracelets:
John 6:48

"I am the bread of life."

Discuss what Jesus meant
when He said these words.  
What do the children think
it means?
Bible Song

Play "I Am the Bread of
Life" song from the "Jesus?
Who Is He?" CD by Twin
Sisters.  For a song sample,

Little Red Hens
Hen Template
Use fingerpaints and feathers to create "Little Red Hens."  
Provide cut-outs of hen bodies and let the children use two
shades of red fingerpaints to color them in.  When the bodies are
dry, let the children glue on red feathers for the hen's
tail-feathers.  Use wiggle- or googly-eyes for the hen's eyes.  Cute!
Little Red Hen Felt Set
Cover the children with protective paint shirts and let
them play with pink shaving foam.  Use cheap shaving
foam to draw large fluffy hearts on a long table.  Place
a few drops of red food coloring here and there in the
foam.  Let the children help it turn pink by mixing it
with their hands.  This activity will stain little hands
(and clothes!)  Take proper precautions.
Field Trip to a Local Bakery
Take a field trip to a local bakery, and show the
children how bread is made for sale in the
supermarket.  In addition, consider showing a
video on bread production from seed to table.
"The Little Red Hen" by Paul Galdone
Who will help the little red hen as she toils about the
house all day? With its familiar refrain and colorful,
humorous artwork, this timeless tale of hard work
and perseverance is perfect for sharing.
"Bread, Bread, Bread" by Ann Morris
What kind of bread do you eat? A bagel? A tortilla? A
baguette? All over the world, wherever there are human
beings, someone is eating bread. Ann Morris's simple text
and Ken Heyman's dazzling full-color photographs reveal
for young readers how people eat -- and how people live
-- the world over.
Farm Center
Set up a farm table with barn,
animals, tractors, fences, and even
a little hay to set the atmosphere.
