Stone Soup Lesson Plans
As always, you can download our weekly lesson plans here:
Read It Up: Stone Soup
This week we are continuing our month long Thanksgiving Research Project. During the month of November we learn about turkeys, we study needs and wants and being thankful. This week we’re incorporating different versions of the story Stone Soup to talk about kindness and being thankful!
Read It Up: Stone Soup
This week is all about stone soup. We read a different version of the story each day, complete a story map and then at the end of the week we compare and contrast the stories and of course make our pot of stone soup!
We will also be making our world-famous paper plate turkeys! These are world-famous because one year they ended up on Yahoo’s list of Top 10 Turkey Craft Fails. Whatevs Yahoo. These turkeys are adorable!
This week we are starting Blends Bootcamp! We kick off Blends Bootcamp with digraphs and this week it’s SH words. Here’s the rundown for the week: Monday circle chart, Tuesday and Wednesday word building/blending, Thursday Word Writing/blending and Friday a word match.
To provide students extra support and practice, we use our differentiated digraph, decodable readers. The readers are included in Blends Bootcamp.

Math: Addition With Quack And Count
This week in
This week our focus will be in small groups so we can target students with adding to 5 or 10!
This week, in honor of Thanksgiving, we are doing a cranberry science experiment. We will predict if cranberries sink or float in water and Sprite. Then we will test our hypothesis!
Foodie Fun Friday
Our Foodie Fun Friday this week is of course Stone Soup!
As part of our feast, each child brings in a can of vegetables, and just like the story, we all contribute to the soup. And then the soup chooses one deserving person to get the stone.
