Soup – Class Visits (School M)

Because I am doing infant/toddler storytime this session, my class visit day has switched!  You’ll see that reflected in the different grades here from my first Class Visits (School M) post.

I had so much fun with my preschool soup storytime, that I decided to continue the theme in these class visits.  I know you all are probably getting tired of seeing soup posts, so this will be my last one.  At least until next January.


Kindergarten
BOOK:

The Wolf’s Chicken Stew by Keiko Kasza

PROP STORY:
Soup Pot with Food 2 Soup Pot with Food 3
There were too many children in this class to pass out the veggies like I did for preschool storytime, so instead we sang this identifying song and I held up the plush toys one at a time.

Open the Fridge
(to the tune of “London Bridge”)
Open the fridge, what’s inside?
What’s inside?
What’s inside?
Open the fridge, what’s inside?
Here’s some _________.
(Have kids fill in the blank with the name of the veggie you are holding up.)

Cook them in a big soup pot,
Big soup pot,
Big soup pot.
Cook them in a big soup pot
Love that soup!

BOOK:

Carrot Soup by John Segal

FINGERPLAY:
Pea Soup
(hold hand up with all five fingers extended)
1 little pea jumped into the pot (fold one finger down)
And waited for the soup to get hot.
2 little peas jumped into the pot (fold one finger down)
And waited for the soup to get hot.
3 little peas jumped into the pot (fold one finger down)
And waited for the soup to get hot.
4 little peas jumped into the pot (fold one finger down)
And waited for the soup to get hot.
5 little peas jumped into the pot (fold one finger down)
And waited for the soup to get hot.
Finally the soup got so very hot
All the little peas jumped out of the pot. (quickly open hand and extend all fingers.)

HOW IT WENT:
Pretty well.  The 1st and 3rd grades showed up a little late, which is why their list of activities is shorter than the other grades. I’ve gotta say, planning for all these different age groups in one visit can be a little difficult.  I think I’m still learning how most effectively to do that.  Anyone have any helpful tips?
