Blueberries for RCNS

Blueberries for RCNS 1Every July I go Blueberry picking, despite the heat. I always think of “Blueberries For Sal” by Robert Mccloskey, while listening to my berries go “kplunk” into my bucket.

At RCNS, Sara and I use Blueberries for Sal to inspire painting at the easel. We  set out purple, blue and white paint for the children to mix so they can get just the shade of blue they think is best for blueberries. We put out Dot sponges or encourage them to use their fingers or ask “What do you think would make a good blueberry print?”  And always “How many blueberries are you going to paint in your bucket?”  This book is has never ending possibilities!  Rebecca
