Stone Soup

This week the children  made Stone Soup.  They reenacted the story as they made the soup.  Afterwards they all got to eat a delicious bowl of stone soup.
  1. For all of you that do not know the story of Stone Soup, you can now read it.
    Some travelers come to a village, carrying nothing more than an empty cooking pot. Upon their arrival, the villagers are unwilling to share any of their food stores with the hungry travelers. Then the travelers go to a stream and fill the pot with water, drop a large stone in it, and place it over a fire. One of the villagers becomes curious and asks what they are doing. The travelers answer that they are making "stone soup", which tastes wonderful, although it still needs a little bit of garnish to improve the flavor, which they are missing. The villager does not mind parting with a few carrots to help them out, so that gets added to the soup. Another villager walks by, inquiring about the pot, and the travelers again mention their stone soup which has not reached its full potential yet. The villager hands them a little bit of seasoning to help them out. More and more villagers walk by, each adding another ingredient. Finally, a delicious and nourishing pot of soup is enjoyed by all.

It's great to have Shantel working for Sunshine Academy again! She worked at our Magna site for about two years and now she is our new preschool at our West Valley site. The kids love her youthful and energetic personality. The other day she made a fun Fall collage with the kids. We are happy to have her with us!

The Truck or Trick was a big hit.  Many of the teachers participated, decorating their trucks and had plenty of candy to hand or to all the kiddies. Magna and West Valley schools attended. It was a great fun and safe way to celebrate Halloween! Thanks to everyone who came and participated. We hope you all had a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
