Kindergarten Sharing Stew

Thanksgiving week is a short, but busy week in Kindergarten.  Every year the Kindergarten students make sharing stew.  Each student is assigned something to bring.  Then the students peel and chop the ingredients.  Then the next day they get to eat the stew for lunch and the leftovers are taken to the Rescue Mission.
 Sharing stew has a list of ingredients that includes: carrots, potatoes, green beans, broth, corn, celery, noodles and mixed vegetables.  Their meal also includes: milk, pumpkin bread, grapes, celery and carrot sticks, bread and homemade butter.  The students make the butter out of whipping cream using a jar with a marble inside.
 The students learned all about the First Thanksgiving.  They made pilgrim hats and Native American headbands.  They also made necklaces out of cereal and macaroni.

 Yesterday they got to eat their sharing stew for lunch.  They had such a good time!  Justin thought that the stew was pretty good, which really surprised me because he is such a picky eater.  He loves Kindergarten!

They all wanted their photo taken with their hats on.  This is most of the class.
Happy Thanksgiving,


  1. What a fun lunch. In second grade we do a healthy feast. We have ham and turkey sandwiches, raw fruits and veggies and cheese. The kids enjoy it and it is something different than the typical feast that they have in k and 1.

  2. Just caught up after being out of town. Yall have had such fun! I love the jealous! And, how cute is the stew? Happy December!

  3. I love Kindergarten! We do a similar stone soup here! However, we don't have pumpkin bread. Yummy!
