The kiddos made ice cream sundaes into fourths. They all picked four different flavors for their scoops of ice cream and had to complete the fraction sentence.
|1/4 of my scoops are chocolate. 1/4 of my scoops are mint chip. 1/4 of my scoops are strawberry. 1/4 of my scoops are rocky road.|
I spent some time reading different versions of Stone Soup and we ended up making Stone Soup as well. I sent a letter home to the families asking for donations of vegetables, crushed tomatoes, bullion cubes, and bowls/utensils. Each person brought in something to add to our soup, just as in the book. I also added two stones and planned to dish them out when the time came. The kids were all sorts of excited about discovering a stone in their soup. One of my lucky kids DID but we had no idea who had the other one. I started to get worried someone ate it. Then later on I found out my track mate across the hall accidentally got it in her bowl. Sorry Kristi! :) It was delicious I must say. The kids actually asked for two and three servings.
All in all the kids had a great week because I not only was told so from parents during conferences but one of my kiddos was supposed to be working on words and came up with this...
|That made my heart happy!|
