Blueberries For Sal

We spent a second day on the book Blueberries for Sal. Holly started off with reading this book aloud to Hudson and I. After reading it we talked about a Story Map reviewing the theme of the book, the setting, the characters, the problem and the solution. Holly then completed a story map on Blueberries for Sal - all on her own. I am quiet impressed with how well she did too!! Holly also created a Venn Diagram comparing the two characters of Sal and Little Bear. She enjoys doing these -- I need to plan in some more that would work well while she masters this skill.

After she completed these two assignments we made blueberry muffins. We used a recipe I have used many time, so a keeper that is very simple and not over the top. Holly really enjoys cooking, this made for another great kitchen experience.

Here is the recipe we used: Easy Blueberry Muffins


  1. Your story maps! What a great way to review the story. The muffins look wonderful!

  2. What a great story and activity. Your muffins look good! I like the idea of the story map. I use Five in a Row with my kids at homeschool and I think that story map would be a nice edition to our weekly readings. Thanks for sharing.
