Stone Soup Friday!

The stones (err..meatballs) were our favorite!

We made STONE SOUP today!!!  Most of the kids thought it was pretty yummy, some didn't like everything that was in it, but the majority gave an overwhelmingly positive response!  To be honest, I didn't think it would be all that wonderful, but it actually was good!  We first mixed Beef Boullion and water to create our broth.  Next, we added freshly chopped onions, fresh ginger, freshly chopped celery, fresh organic chives, salt, pepper, sugar snap peas, meatballs (as the stones), crushed red pepper, minced garlic, water chestnuts, mushrooms, carrots, rice, and noodles.  Finally, we poured more broth over all of the ingredients and let it cook for 4 1/2 hours.  Here are some pics...

We made enough to share with all of G-Complex!

The beginning of Stone Soup

We all crowded around to add our ingredients

TJ loved it!  He kept asking for seconds!


Our reading class is the BEST!

Love our Readers!

After we got our stone soup mixed together and cooking, we began our Spelling test.  Upon completion of our spelling test, we began our weekly ORQ.  Almost every single one that I graded got a '4'!  Wooo Hooo!!!  And guess what?  I have some big plans for reading next week :)

In math, we continued reviewing word problems and then got to play baseball addition since it is 'gameday Friday'!

After lunch, our stone soup was finally ready and we gobbled it all up.  Once we ate it, we went on a walk and then watched a video about the first Thanksgiving. 

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend!  Only 2 days of school next week!

6 days until Thanksgiving!!!
