 Story, The Soup Stone Gathering of veges brought in by the class
 Discussion as the story progresses. Name each of the foods in Spanish and English. Match real vegetables with the pictures from the story. Match up cut vegetables with the uncut vegetables. Match up picture/word cards with the vegetables. Practice repeating, naming the vegetables with the cards while the soup is cooking. Compare how we are sharing food with the story and identify the underlying thread...friendship.
 Students will buddy up with the picture/word card that matches what they put in the pot. I will hold up a vegetable (real), all will repeat the name of it. Then those who brought in that vegetable will hold up their picture/word card. Students will switch buddies to learn a new vegetable. Continue until all students have a chance to practice the names of all the vegetables.
Checking For Understanding:
 Students will complete a scaffolded sentence by copying the name and picture of the vegetable they brought. Students will orally identify each of the vegetables brought with the picture/word cards.
 Students will eat the soup, identifying the cooked vegetables as they find them in the soup. Students will thank each other for sharing their food and thank them for being a friend.
 Students can name 3 - 5 vegetables in English. Students can identify 3 - 5 vegetables in the soup. Students can read back their sentences with the correct vegetable named.
