  • 4 cups effort (chicken broth)
  • 1 large can kindness (28 oz. can diced tomatoes)
  • 2 cups teamwork (cubed cooked chicken)
  • 2 big handfuls curiosity (carrot matchsticks)
  • 1 can honesty (15 oz. can kidney beans, drained)
  • 1 cup enthusiasm (dry uncooked small alphabet pasta)
  • 1 cup confidence (frozen corn)
  • 2 Tablespoons fairness (chili powder)
  • Sprinkle of pride in all your hard work (salt)
  • A pinch of fun (black pepper)


  1. Confidently measure all ingredients into a large pot, reading the descriptive “names” for each ingredient as you add them. Stir with a gentle hand.
  2. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat, and then simmer over medium-low, stirring often throughout with equal amounts passion and care.
  3. The soup is ready when all ingredients have completed their important tasks and are cooked to perfection, about 5-7 minutes.
  4. Ladle the soup into bowls and pass them around to classmates, friends, siblings, parents, teachers, and all those who love and support your child through their every endeavor – because success is always best when shared.
