The Little Red Hen is a class folktale story. It is one that is fun to read and learn from. We read the book and learned about making bread and the steps that we did.
We read The Little Red Hen (Little Golden Book) and then made bread.
Amelia put the ingredients in the mixer. We talked about the sizes of cups and how many of them we put in each time.
The dough was mixed and covered to rise.
After a second mixing we cut up the dough into 5 parts and kneaded it.
We baked the bread. Afterwards Amelia put a glaze on the top of the bread.
This was a fun process and got Amelia involved a lot. Mary watched from the side and looked at the mixer while we made the dough. After it was all done the girls enjoyed the results.
