Where Has Father Sun Gone?
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 enjoy singing and reciting nature-based, seasonal songs and poems. As the month progresses, we continue to learn new verses to our songs and poems. 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 of Where Has Father Sun Gone? In this story, the creatures of the forest miss Father Sun and worry he may never return. They decide to go visit him and ask him when he will return.
