Digital Little Red Hen Self-Directed Reading Activities

This self-directed learning quest guides students through digital independent reading activities for the story, The Little Red Hen. Students watch an introductory folktale video, listen to or read the story, complete comprehension activities, write story responses, and submit answers to a quiz.

The mini-lesson video is embedded in the Google Slides and comes pre-linked to YouTube as a separate Seesaw activity.
We included step-by-step instructions on how to assign the activities to students in SeeSaw and a video tutorial for assigning to Google Slides.

The learning quest activities are also provided in a printable format (PDF) for color or black line copies.

Students can be self-directed as they independently complete all the learning quest activities and turn them in digitally to get more immediate feedback. This is also a great extension resource in the classroom for fast finishers.

An important note about pre-recorded audio:

We have pre-recorded the audio in Google Slides so the story can be read aloud to students. Some districts block audio files they do not own, meaning the audio may not play for your students on this platform. In this case, we have no way to alter your district’s settings. While the audio enhances the student’s experience in the learning quest, students are able to complete the activities without it. As another note, the pre-recorded audio provided in the Seesaw platform does not seem to have the same issues. Please take this into consideration before making your purchase.
