BROWN BEAR NEWSLETTER
What happened this week?
We also reviewed shapes and discussed the letter "B". We practiced writing the letter B in sand, on chalkboards and on paper. We did a really cool science experiment by using baking soda and vinegar to inflate a Balloon. We also did a lot of fine motor activities that you've probably seen in the photos. Activities that help strengthen their pincer grip like kneading play dough, pushing buttons through a plastic lid, poking pipe cleaners through the holes on a colander, etc.
We also began child storytelling. This is when the kids sit one on one with one of us and tell us a story. As they're talking, we write exactly what they say. Once their story is finished, we talk to them about the characters in their story and they get to choose actors and then we act it out. It's great fun!
