B is for Blueberries

Blue and Blueberries were today's theme. We had Gymboree class and had errands to run so we didn't get a lot of school in. I guess a little is better than none. Here is what we did do.

Alex painted blueberries with a pompom. We then made a basket around them using the wooden popsicle sticks that we were given thanks to I got the idea for this craft from Little Page Turners.

We also practiced counting with some blue modeling clay that we made into "blueberries." It was good fine motor skill practice too.

I just wrote number 1-8 on the paper and made corresponding dots and Alex added the "blueberries." He does pretty good up to 5 then he gets mixed up.

For a snack he of course had blueberries and also a bowl of some blue yogurt with sprinkles.

The books we read were Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey

and Jamberry by Bruce Degen
