Our cute color monster today said “Blue, Blue is sick with the flu!” The poem we learned was “Blue is the ocean, blue are my eyes, blue is the sky where the lonely eagle flies! We also had some yummy blue frosted cookies brought by Kyle’s mom. Thank you!! Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey was a book that we read to do several activities. We used this book for a math activity to count sets of blueberries and making groups and adding them together. We also worked on patterning with muffins. We then did a story map discussing who? where? and what? about the story.
We also enjoyed the story Dear Mr. Blueberry by Simon James about a girl that writes letters to her teacher about a whale that she found in her pond. The teacher writes letters back and gives neat facts about whales and how they live and survive. We then made the whale character from the story.
