Before Five in a Row: Blueberries for Sal

We had a lot of fun rowing Blueberries for Sal.

We enjoyed reading the story each day and found lots of fun activities!


...had a blueberry hunt inside with pom pom balls, and practiced counting and sorting.

...had a blueberry hunt outside with blue beads, which we could hear "plink" into our tin pails.

We talked a little bit about hibernation, and read a supplemental bear book.

We made blueberry playdoh with koolaid, which smelled awesome! {And played with it for hours (score!)}

We talked about the ink drawings in the book, and drew our own versions of blueberry hill with ink. Then we added bear and bush stickers and painted/stamped blueberries using a cork.

We did a few practice sheets of tracing, rhyming, starts with, and prepositions.

Our big surprise at the end of the week was that we ordered blueberry bushes for our yard! The delivery date got pushed back because the bushes weren't ready, but when they arrived Reed and Daddy got right to work planting them! :)
