This Week on Purple Day: Goodbye, Winter, Goodbye

This Week on Purple Day

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 song and poem verses. 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 Goodbye, Winter, Goodbye. In this sweet nature tale, Sister Spring takes over for Father Winter and begins to warm the land and gently turn it into spring.

Winter goodbye, winter goodbye.
You may no longer stay
Springtime is on her way
Winter goodbye, winter goodbye.

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 go on an adventure in the Indiana woods to see if we can find Indiana's "Stonehenge."

Please note: Storytime is written and recorded for the screen. Some elements of Storytime will transfer better than others.
