Stone Soup by Jon Muth

In honor of Fairy Tale Month, the BOOK OF THE DAY is:

  • Visit DLTK site for a variety of story-related activities, coloring pages, and recipes.
  • Sing the Stone Soup Song (from Songs for Teaching).
  • Share Stone Soup (Chinese Edition) with your class. Although you may not be able to "read" it, it is important that children are exposed to other languages.
  • Add paper shaped like a pot to your art and writing areas. During Center Time or Choice Time, the children can choose to draw or paint pictures of their own version of stone soup.
  • Have each child bring a vegetable to school, and make stone soup. There are many variations of recipes available online.
  • Read other versions of this story such as Stone Soup by Ann McGovern.
  • Make a flannel board story by cutting out a pot, stone, and vegetables out of felt. Use DLTK's coloring pages to find patterns.
  • Make a Stone Soup Alphabet Book. Illustrate parts of the story and focus on the letters (ex: S is for soup, O is for onion, p is for pot, etc). You don't have to include all 26 letters! Just include a few that you might be working on during this unit.
