The Little Red Hen...what did she plant?

In our Word Work center today we had fun spinning a word related to plants and then playing TicTacToe.  We used seeds for the markers!  What fun.

We also read The Little Red Hen.  Before we read the story the children wrote  what they remembered about the story.  Following the reading we added one detail we had forgotten to share.  Then we created these adorable "hens"!

To complete the theme we planted a wheat seed.  Each student was given a straw, a square of paper towel and a wheat seed.  The towel gets folded and twisted into the straw leaving a little out for the water to soak in.  The seed is then dropped into the straw and put in a cup of water.  Now...let the growing begin!
