This Week on Purple Day: The Giant TurnipAug 28, 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 sing songs about the harvest and hear a folktale about a Giant Turnip. This Storytime episode will teach you and your child seasonal songs, poems, and fingerplays as well as 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.
During circle time, we learn seasonal songs and poems together. This week, we learn new lines and words to our poems, making our circle time slightly longer than last week. We also practice a mindful breathing exercise.
After circle time, we hear a story together. The fourth week of the month, we hear a nature or folk tale. This week we hear a traditional story from Russian about a family who finds a giant turnip when harvesting their vegetables. It is so big that everyone in the family comes to help pull it out–dad, mom, son, daughter, and family dog. They pull, and they pull, but the turnip doesn’t budge. A wee mouse then scampers over to help, and they pull, and they pull…and the turnip comes out!
