BROWN BEAR NEWSLETTER
What happened this week?
The Bears had a wonderful opportunity this week to go to the big church to hear the church organist play the organ. We learned all about the pipes, keyboard, pedals, stops and console of the organ and what each did. We also got to hear the different size pipes and learned that the small pipes play a high note and the large pipes play the low notes. We also got to hear how the organ can play notes with all different sounds. Some sound like trumpets! We got to sing the Itsy Bitsy Spider, ABC's and several other songs. It was a real treat.
We also began our next set of 10 work jobs. We're working on completing 40 at this point and will complete 100 by the end of the year. This set of work jobs includes writing the numbers 1 and 2, initial sound recognition for A, B, D, E, F and O, lacing work, number ordering, biggest to smallest, fine motor work with tweezers, sequencing, and rhyming among other things.
We've also discussed the letter Q and brainstormed things that begin with a Q which isn't a lot!
