This Week on Purple Day: Grandpa Ivy & the Leprechaun

This Week on Purple Day

Every Purple Day, or Monday, we are inside the Schoolhouse for circle time and storytime.
During circle time, we enjoy singing and reciting nature-based, seasonal songs and poems. We start a new circle time at the beginning of the month, slowly learning the songs and poems together throughout the month. We also practice a deep breathing exercise on Mondays.

After circle time, we listen to a story together. Ms. Becca tells us a Grandpa Ivy story the first week of each month. This week we hear the story of Grandpa Ivy and the Leprechaun. In this silly story, the leprechaun takes Grandpa Ivy’s hat, and Grandpa Ivy builds a leprechaun trap to get it back. Don’t worry; no leprechauns are harmed in this story!

He’s somewhere in this room.
Is he over here or is he over there?

Purple Day is a podcast from Storytime in the Schoolhouse. Our Purple Day podcast episodes are the audio from our Monday videos. Storytime Members can access five weekly videos, including puppet shows on Thursdays and Fridays. They also have access to corresponding activities and curricula.

Every Yellow Day, or Wednesday, we are outside for Storytime, and we go on a field trip to see someone in the community or visit a new place. This week we hike to a waterfall with Ms. Becca in the remote area of Shelton-Laurel, NC. Our local tourism website shares some information about this hike: https://visitmadisoncounty.com/hickey-fork-falls/
