Stone Soup

On Tuesday, the students shared their research of the “Timeline of Life” with our classmates. Each group worked together to present a diorama, puppet show, or poster that represented the era or period of study.

Allie surprised our classmates with a new pet last week! Introducing, “Cookie,” a yellow bellied slider turtle. Inspired to learn more about turtles, the students jumped right into learning about the external parts of a turtle and the body functions of reptiles.

On Thursday, we read the classic tale of “Stone Soup.” In this story, three hungry and tired soldiers pass through a town seeking food and shelter. At first, the villagers are fearful and selfish hiding their food and making excuses not to extend hospitality toward the soldiers. The soldiers devise a clever plan to get fed. In the end, the villagers worked cooperatively and happily with the soldiers to make “stone soup” and a good time was had by all. Our classmates quickly made the connection between the story and our weekly community snack. There is something special about preparing a meal together. This week we made our own “stone soup.” Enjoy the photos!
