Valley View First Graders Link Literacy to Life with Stone Soup

          In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Valley View first grade enjoyed an annual tradition before the Thanksgiving break. 
First, students listened to and compared several versions of the traditional folktale Stone Soup.  Stone Soup is an old tale of hungry travelers who happen upon a town in poverty. The travelers ask the villagers if they have any food to spare, but the untrusting villagers are unwilling to share the little that they have. The clever travelers introduce how to make stone soup using stones as the first ingredient. This piques the villagers’ interest, and they begin eagerly sharing other ingredients to make the soup tastier. At the end, they all join together to celebrate with a feast of the plentiful soup with newfound friends. 
After hearing a couple versions of Stone Soup, all students brought in an ingredient for a feast of “Friendship Soup” or “Stone Soup”, just as in the books.  They even used actual (clean, of course!) stones.  Students brought in their ingredients on the day before Thanksgiving break, added the ingredients to a big pot in the morning, let the soup simmer all day, and enjoyed a friendship feast together in the afternoon. Several people commented on the delicious aroma drifting down the first grade hallway throughout the day and on the happy faces seen on first grade friends.
