Grandpa Ivy's River Adventure

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. 

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 River Adventure.

One hot morning, Grandpa Ivy wakes up and realizes it’s a perfect day to float down the river in his raft.  As his raft floats down the river, he passes the homes of many of his friends: Little Frog, Little Mouse, Little Squirrel, Little Deer, and Little Bear. One by one, his friends join him on his raft until it is quite full! As they go around a final turn before Grandpa Ivy’s home, the raft topples over and sends them all into the river laughing!
