We made blueberry pie in preschool

Read the book “Blueberries for Sal” by Robert McCloskey and then make a blueberry pie!

Our preschoolers started off by gluing some strips of manila paper on top of a brown construction paper pie crust.

The children criss-crossed their paper which was a challenging concept for some of the younger children…

Other children caught on very easily…

Once all the pieces of the pie were in place, then the teacher helped the children trim off the excess paper (pie dough) from around the edges.

Then each child dipped a finger in blue paint and made blueberry prints…

The class next door made blueberry pies too! As you can see below, theirs turned out a tad different!

And some of the children preferred to “rub” their blueberries on rather than press them on:)

I like simple activities such as this to extend a story into the classroom. Sometimes I get a little carried away with all the photographs!!

Here are a few fun and simple blueberry ideas from Delightful Learning!

And did these pies make you hungry? Try making a blueberry crisp!

I am linking up with Red Ted Art today!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
