What Rhymes with HEN?

Word Family -en Activity
-en Word family, hen activity
here are some words my students came up with: ken, ben, pen, men, den, ten, "wen", zen, jen...

I found this picture on then copied and pasted it on Word to make it a little bigger. I used the "text box" to add "__en" on the eggs. That's it; easy peasy!
Final product^^^

You could use this Hen instead. It is much nicer, maybe next time.
One of the parents had chicks, so she brought them to share with the class.

How to Milk a Cow

How to milk a cow by hand
Farm unit- how to milk cows lesson plan.
I found this precious idea on Little Kinder Warriors. I decided on this activity kind of last minute, so I didn't have time to make a cute cow like Katie.
We first watched this youtube video, that explains how to properly milk a cow.
