Blueberries for Sal

Blueberries for Sal

by, Margaret Wise Brown

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a BFIAR post. We’ve had an interesting couple of months. I have really struggled to be consistent now that I went back to work full time (although my full time season was short and is already ended yipee!). We also had our Easter week of learning time and my mom came to visit for a couple of weeks and then I had a class I had to study for and then we found out we’re pregnant with our 4th and thus entered pregnancy fatigue! Deep breath! Again I am so thankful I don’t have to be working full time right now anymore and we can focus on finishing our BFIAR plans for June and July… take August off to plan for our upcoming year with Heart of Dakota and Joshie’s first year of ABC Preschool! I am so excited to be 100% devoted to this again and not work : ( We keep praying for God to change our financial situation and soon so I don’t have to squeeze in work again this winter especially with the baby due in January! I digress : )

Bible Time:

“God is our refuge and strength

an ever present help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear,

though the earth give way

and the mountains fall 

into the heart of the sea.”

Psalm 46:1-2




We liked reading Blueberries for Sal and we fortunately made a trip to the city and were able to buy some blueberries in bulk at Sam’s Club : ) So we ate a lot of blueberries this week!

Here is Amelia’s book report and some printables

Fruit and Vegetable sorting game from this website


I got the following printables from a Nutrition Unit Study from this website I wasn’t sure what else to do with this book and liked the idea of learning about some fruits and vegetables.

Learning how much sugar is in some different things we like to eat.


Match up the different food groups


Putting stickers on this chart when we eat a different fruit or vegetable with the different colors of the rainbow


Putting stickers onto this body each time you eat a fruit or vegetable


And we went over the food guide pyramid and what different serving sizes look like for different ages
