Stone Soup

There are many versions of the story “Stone Soup”.  The one I chose was about soldiers coming home from war.   They were hungry and tricked villagers into sharing their food by making soup from a stone.

It took the soup took just under a half hour to cook.  I had cut the vegetables quite small, one so it would cook quickly and two to decrease any choking threat.

I brought my bread maker and made a loaf of bread to go with it.  I think the children enjoyed the bread more then the soup.

  2. Dear Maureen,
    I think the video of you telling the story to the strong start kids was so cute! I loved your story telling and your acting to along, and the kids looked really entertained. I really love this story and had forgotten about it until recently. Thank you.
    As well, the soup and bread looked absolutely fantastic! Great job and keep going :)

  3. Hello Ms.Maureen,
    I love the story you read to your class. It used to be one of my favourite bed time stories when I was young. I love the fact that you made soup with your class. I would love to make stone soup sometime. Thank you for reminding me of my favourite story when I was young.
