The Purple Day Podcast is the audio from our Monday episodes of Storytime in the Schoolhouse. Please note: Storytime is written and recorded for the screen. Some elements of Storytime will transfer better than others.
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. This month, we are learning Faucet Breathing.
After circle time, we hear a story together. We hear a pedagogical or teaching tale the second week of each month. These stories address an upcoming change, difficult event, or challenging behavior. Today, we hear the story of Sunday Bread. This story is a silly way to start a weekly bread-baking rhythm.
