Button Tales

Today we started our Bone Button Borscht by Aubrey Davis unit study.  I love this book.  It's a take on Stone Soup and very well written.

Hudson and I sat with a big pile of buttons in front of us and I chose a button and made up a story about it.  I did this twice then turned to Hudson and said your turn... This is the story he told me:
This button belonged to a man named Shred. And it was on his coat. And when he was walking the button fell off the coat and was in a high tree. And it was covered by leaves. And someone found it. And that is the story of this button.


After I wrote down his story Hudson drew a tree at the top of the page and then glued the button into it. 
I  loved this!  I can't wait to explore more story telling with Hudson.
