Your kiddos are learning SO quickly now! I am so thrilled with their progress! Remember that our ‘sol la ti do’ pattern is played on the lower case letter solfege when playing on the bells. ‘sol’ is the big red bell and then step up from there.
Within the next month we will start enrolling for next year. If you have friends or family that you want on my waiting list, please let me know ASAP so I can get their information before I begin open enrollment up to the general public.
Homework: pp. 6–7 Students color the line and space notes of a major scale.
Can't Bug Me!
It's fabulous how we are learning to ‘read’ bug rhythms from pictures - we mixed up the order of our bugs and they still clapped them correctly! That means that they are internalizing the rhythm of each bug. Fantastic progress!
Bill Grogan's Goat
This week we introduced a silly story about Bill Grogan's goat. If this tale seems strange to your child, check out this funny youtube video, which tells a longer story about the goat, including where he goes when he rides on the train and what he gets to eat when he meets the queen!
Be sure to get the new lyrics from me next week if I forgot to hand them to you!
Grab a basketball and use the Let's Play Music bugs to PLAY a game with the ball after you watch this video!
