This Week on Purple Day: The Mitten
Purple Day is a podcast from Storytime in the Schoolhouse. Our Purple Day podcasts are the audio from Storytime’s Monday episodes. Please note: Storytime is written and recorded for the screen. Some elements of Storytime will transfer better than others.
In this week's episode of Purple Day, we will sing songs about snow, winter, and Jack Frost. Then, we will hear the old Russian folktale The Mitten. This Storytime episode will teach you and your child seasonal songs, poems, fingerplays, and a nature-based story. Enjoy Storytime with your child and deepen your connection to each other and the world around you.
Every Purple Day, or Monday, we are inside the schoolhouse for circle time and storytime.
We enjoy singing and reciting nature-based, seasonal songs and poems during circle time. As the month progresses, we learn new verses for our songs and poems. We also practice a deep breathing exercise on Mondays.
After circle time, we hear a story together. We listen to nature stories and folk tales during the third and fourth weeks of the month. Today, we hear the story of The Mitten. In this Russian tale, an old man walks in the woods and drops his mitten while hiking, leaving it on the forest floor. One by one, animals in the forest find the mittens and climb inside until the mitten is full of animals!
