Stones, Veggies and Soup



One of our school annual projects is working crosscurricular in our EFL/ ESL classes.

So, these are some of the activities we did at school while reading The Stone Soup

We ..
  • made predictions. The kids looked at the cover of the book and told what they think the story would be about.
  • went on a picture walk through the book.  We didn't read the text, just looked at each picture and told what they thought is happening in each picture.
  • cololored the cover of our folder. 
  • made soup using favorite recipes. 
  • graphed our favorite soup
  • read different versions of the story
  • looked for information about vegetables and fruits.
  • discussed about the differences between fruits and vegetables and what each one was
  • sorted veggies and fruits  by putting on the fruit basket or veggies basket.
  • used the vocabulary cards to review and practice vocabulary
  • used the necklace to recalled the events of the story. 
  • sorted the words by beginning sounds, syllables, short or long words
  • estimated how many seeds there were in a pumpkin, in an apple, etc
  • made puppets with craft sticks to sequence events
  • stamped some veggies and fruits
  • sorted veggies and fruits by color, shape, size
  • finished the sentence My favorite vegetable is____ 
  • learned about growing circles of different veggies and fruits
  • made fruit salad
  • played Fruit, Fruit, Veggie! like Duck, Duck Goose!
  • made a collage using pictures from flyers from local supermarkets
  • sang a song
The Blueberry Bush
 Tune: The Mulberry BushHere we go round the blueberry bush,
The blueberry bush, the blueberry bush.
Here we go round the blueberry bush,
So early in the morning.
Pick the blueberries small and round,
Small and round, small and round.
Pick the blueberries small and round,
So early in the morning.
(Taste the blueberries, ripe and sweet.)
