This Week on Purple Day: Grandpa Ivy's May Day SurpriseMay 01, 2023
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 learn springtime songs and poems and then hear a story about a very windy day. 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. 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’s May Day Surprise. Every year on the first day of May, Grandpa Ivy wakes up early and delivers baskets of flowers–May Baskets–to his neighbors and friends in Riverbend. This is how he continues the May Day celebration he loved as a child.
