This morning we began the day by coloring another funny blue monster. Then we worked together to make a list of thing that are blue. We also wrote a sentence about something that is blue and drew a picture. The first blue story we read was Blueberries for Sal. In the story little Sal goes with her mom to pick blueberries. They cross paths with a mother bear and her cub who are looking for blueberries too. After wandering off the young ones trail off behind the wrong mother. Luckily they find their own mothers at the end of the story.
Before going to lunch we read Dear Mr. Blueberry. This is a story about a little girl named Emily who thinks she sees a whale living in the pond outside her window. She writes a series of letters to her teacher, Mr. Blueberry, asking for information about whales. After the story we made a blue whale art project of our own.
