I have many favorite units I look forward to teaching each year, especially my 2nd grade Stone Soup unit! In addition to the traditional Stone Soup and Nail Soup stories, there are numerous fun retelllings of this classic folktale. Our second graders at Hollis have been comparing multiple versions of the Stone Soup story, including Cactus Soup, Fandango Stew, and Kallaloo. On Thursday, Mrs. Bshara's class used Venn Diagrams to identify similarities and differences between two soup stories that we read. They did a great job recalling details from the stories as they worked on their Venn Diagrams.
