Stone Soup

Today at school was Stone Soup day.  The kids loved reading the story and today we made our own for lunch....

Anytime we can, we have the kids do as much as the work as possible...its not the easiest way ( actually, its much more work for me) but it is incredible to see them take ownership and rise to a challenge.  The children love to get involved and DO.

Here Mara cuts celery
Other children cut carrots and peel and cut potatoes
Even scrubbing the stone ( for hours) was a job!
All the work and supplies were on the shelf for the children to choose.  Most knew what to do already from previous lessons, but could ask of they needed help.

We put the stone in for the final ingredient!
And we all enjoyed an amazing lunch together!
