The Shoemaker & the Elves

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 the final verses to our songs and poems for this month’s circle time. We also practice our deep breathing exercises on Mondays at the end of circle time. This month we are learning Hand Breathing.

After circle time, we hear a story together. Today we hear the story of the Shoemaker and the Elves. An old shoemaker has enough leather left to make only one pair of shoes. He cuts out the leather one evening and sets it on the bench along with a thread and needle. Everything was in its place so he could start the work the next morning. The next morning he wakes to find the shoes already made, and made exceptionally well!
