By working together, with everyone contributing what they can, a greater good is achieved!

Today in Literacy we read the tale of Stone Soup. It is a wonderful story about making soup but how working together great things can happen.
As a follow up activity one of the Literacy tasks was to use play-doh to make your own bowl and ingredients, used in the Stone Soup recipe. To my surprise at the end of the lesson when the Creative group, reported back, they had not each made their own bowl of stone soup but they put all their creations together and made one big bowl of Stone Soup.
They were extremely proud of what they had done. I just love when the Moral of the Story is enacted within the students own work.
It also leads in perfectly to our Whole Class action on Wednesday, as we prepare to Make Lunch for our local senior Citizens.
