Early Learning Resources The Little Red Hen (Free Printable Teaching Resources)

The Little Red Hen

The Little Red Hen originates from a Russian folktale from the 19th century, but since then it has been released by a variety of publishers including Little Golden Books and Ladybird Books. The book tells the story of a hen who finds some wheat and decides to make some bread, but none of the other farm animals will help her. Eventually she makes the bread herself and when the other animals ask to have some she eats it all herself!  This story is well-loved by children and can also be used to help teach about helping and sharing in PSED lessons.

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!

I really enjoy putting together eye-catching displays in my classroom and ELHQ always has lots of colourful and engaging material to choose from.

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!
