I love the Five in a Row curriculum, the premise is that you should read the same children’s book to your child for five days in a row, all week. We have Before Five in a Row, and are reading through some of the books in there and also picking books according to our season, theme, or interest. Our book this week was a B book, Blueberries for Sal. I will try to coordinate the book with our letter each week. Homeschool Creations and Homeschool Share have many printable resources for the Five in a Row series. Other wonderful moms have provided literature-based printables on their sites too. I am taking full advantage.
We loved the wonderful printable book from Homeschool Creations. It corresponds with our book of the week. It focuses on directions. “Little bear is next to the tree, on top of the rock”, etc. I put velcro dots on the back of the cut out little bears and he loved putting them onto their corresponding page.
And last year, we read the book again, but this time we went blueberry picking just like Sal!!
Our end result was a delicious pie :)
