Each day during March, I am participating in the Two Writing Teachers Slice of Life Story Challenge (SOLSC). All participants are writing about one moment, one part of their day, every day for thirty-one days. My slices will be primarily about teaching preschoolers. Check out the Two Writing Teachers website for lots more reflections on teaching. Thanks especially to Stacey, Tara, Anna, Beth, Dana, and Betsy for hosting this writing challenge.
1 magical stone (washed several times for sanity's sake)
1 onion (will the children cry when cutting?)
1 rib of celery (chopped up as small as possible)
3 small potatoes (let children use sharp knife to cut these into small chunks - with close supervision)
3 cans of beans (black, cannellini, garbanzo) (fun for children to use can opener)
4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 baby carrots (as many as children enjoy cutting)
6 cups of vegetable stock (let children measure each cup)
Let cook all day in crockpot, until classroom smells delicious, serve and eat.
21 happy preschoolers, celebrating the end of our folktale unit!
