While it isn’t fresh berry season here in PA, there are lots of berries in the stores. This is a great opportunity to introduce your child to some tasty berries.

If your child enjoyed yesterday’s Jack Hartmann video, here is his letter B video

berry survey

Favorite berry survey: Have your child create a survey sheet. Then they can poll family members or even their stuffed animals. Have your child ask the people “Do you prefer strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or blackberries?” Then your child will color in the graph accordingly. Children love creating surveys as they get to know new information about people AND practice graphing at the same time. This is a great activity to complete when calling extended family members.

berry patterns

Berry patterns: Have your child draw, or even better use real berries, to create patterns. Have your child name the pattern as they make each pattern. Remind them that a pattern is something that repeats itself.
