Kerplink! Kerplank! Kerplunk! Audrey has so enjoyed our reading of McCloskey's Blueberries for Sal. We have begun our adventures in Before Five in a Row. "Begun" as in we started smack in the middle of the curriculum because I love Robert McCloskey so much and bought my own copy of the precious Little Sal/Little Bear mix-up.
Audrey was so cute as we walked beside Little Sal on a daily walk up blueberry hill. Each time we would get to the part where Little Sal would start tramping behind the mama bear and Little Bear would start tramping behind Sal's momma, her eyes would twinkle, and she would say, "Uh oh! They're all mixed up!"
She also loved acting the book out everyday. She would Kerplink! Kerplank! Kerplunk! three blueberries in her little metal cup, then Kerplunk! one more, and then eat all 4 of them. A very simple math lesson found in that.
And then for the finale of the week...blueberry picking.
