Happy Hens

 Our happy hens are hanging by our door to greet visitors to our classroom. 

We have been learning to read and write cvc (consonant, vowel, consonant) words for the past few weeks and this week we have been working on 'en' words. Our happy hens were a perfect craft activity! These hens were inspired by this post.

Use half a circle of card and roll it into a cone shape. Staple, glue, or sellotape on feathers for the tail, draw a 'v' shaped beak, and glue on googly eyes. Too cute! 

The children loved holding and stoking themselves (and each other) with the soft feathers.

We have been reading and acting out this hen poem. I also displayed these 'en' rime words so we can keep practicing reading and writing the sounds we have learnt. 
Check out our these posts to learn more about our phonics program:

Watch Out, Bats About - 'at' words.
Dalmatian Dogs - 'og' words.
Pink Peg Pigs - 'ig' words.
Lovely Ladybugs - 'ug' words.
