One of the most powerful lessons inside the story of the Little Red Hen is helping others.   I have homework  where the children take on a chore at home for a full week.  Every child who completes the full week of doing a chore – receives a Little Red Hen Helping Hand Award.  (I do not have the original document files but I have taken pictures of both the homework sheet and the award.)

Children love being able to contribute to their families.  Chores provide a meaningful and purposeful task for children to give helping hands.
