In preparation for Stone Soup we began reading Fox Tail Soup by Tony Bonning. We also tasted and painted with all kinds of vegetables. The children had lots of fun using prior knowledge from our story to make their own Stone Soup in our dramatic play area. They had the opportunity to practice holding a knife and cutting pretend Velcro vegetables. We had the chance to utilize our sensory table by giving the children a chance to wash and scrub some toy vegetables. With this lesson the children learned that vegetables are healthy and nutritious and will make their bodies big and strong Thank you for our amazing parent who volunteered and made some amazing soup.
Exploring and introducing the forest this week was fun, and to talk about the creatures we see out there was like second nature to them. The children recognized lots of animals, nature items and sleeping outdoors. How amazing it was to see the children be familiar with the outdoors “Forest” and how they connected to the beauty outside. Ooh!. We found a branch outside and brought it into our class to explore.Let’s have S’mores Fun! 🥰😎👩🏼🍳👨🏽🍳
