This reader would be great to use alone or after you have read the three original stories: Little Red Hen, Hattie and the Fox, and Rosie's Walk.
You may also want to retell the original stories and this one. You can purchase my retelling props separately or in the bundle. I also have a reader's theater script based on this story.
I had fun creating this story and I look forward to using it after my student compare two of the stories at a time.
You could use this during guided reading, too.
