3 Blueberries For Sal Preschool Math Activities

Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey is a great book to read to your preschooler.  The book begins with Sal and her mother on their way to pick blueberries to can for the winter.  Along the way her mother encourages Sal to pick her own blueberries, thus Sal's adventure begins!  This book a selection in the Before Five In A Row manual.

To go along with the book, I put together some activities for Little Sis that each focus on a certain math skill.

1:1 Correspondence
For this activity, Little Sis was to use the spoon to pick up a marble and put it in the bucket all the while saying, "Kerplink- Kerplunk- Kerplank!" and count, of course!

Sorting Pom Pom Blueberries
This tray works on classification and sorting by size and color.  To add in more fine motor practice, I also added in a pair of tweezers for Little Sis to use to pick up the "blueberries."

Roll a Pie Number Recognition Game
To help Little Sis with number recognition, I made an image of a pie and put the numbers 1-6 on it.  Little Sis was to roll the dice, find the corresponding number on the pie, and then add a blue sticker onto the number.
