  • Kindergarteners make Friendship Soup after reading the folktale Stone Soup

    Melissa Wheeler's and Maria Darrigrande's Kindergarten classes have been learning about folktales this month. Wheeler's class will be going to the Charlotte Symphony to see a performance of Stone Soup! Students created their own version of Stone Soup in January. The students named it Friendship Soup. Students invited their older reading buddies from Alisa DeLoreto's Class to cook soup, bake bread and then share with us. Each student brought one ingredient. We loved it! We wanted more!
