This book is about a little girl, her mother, a baby bear, and her mother picking and eating blueberries.
Blueberries for Sal lapbook
This is the inside of our lapbooks, unit found here.The inside sides are different things that are found in the book.
Blueberry numbers to count at the top, and a emergent reader book.
This is a cut and paste short text book teaching besides, on top, next to, etc. This became a great demonstration book for little tots who didn't quit understand, and lots of fun.
They had to glue little bear where each sentence read where he was at. This is where I demonstrated the words.
On the back of our lapbook the children put a puzzle together to their skill level.
I found a youtube video of the book.
The book is being read by a solider dad to his children. Yeah, his shirt is off, that I don't get, but I explained to the children that this dad was in the army and far away from his children and found time to send them a video reading a story to them.
One child under stood because their family used Skype when his dad worked in Afghanistan.
Having no place to pick blueberries, we used our imagination a little and pretended to pick blueberries and put in a pail.
I cut out blueberries from construction paper and they glued and counted their berries. They love to glue, so this activity was enjoyable.This will go in their binders.
