The "en" Word Family

This is a great Little Red Hen project that I first saw my friend, Mrs. McCain do in her class.  It is excellent tracing and cutting practice as well as the word family work.

 I love to see how the children embellish the hens with details.
 I prepare brown paper with paint and cut some of it up into strips for the nest.
 I feel it is important to let the children put it all together in their own way.  I do not like every one looking the same.  It is so much more fun to let them do it their way!
These are the tracers I provide for the children.

    I LOVE these word family art projects! Do you think most of them up or do you have a resource you use? I would love to do more that the traditional word slide. Thanks!
