Buster Bear Goes Fishing

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. As the month progresses, we learn new verses for our songs and poems. This week we learn the final verses to our songs and poems for this month’s circle time. 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 Buster Bear Goes Fishing.

Buster Bear wakes up in the forest, and all he can think about is having trout for breakfast, so he heads to Laughing Brook River to catch a fish. However, Buster Bear isn’t the first one awake and trying to catch a fish for breakfast. Walking along the river, he surprises someone already there, causing them to drop their fish on the river bank and run away. As Buster Bear walks along, he finds a trout flipping and flopping on the sandy river bank! Buster Bear doesn’t realize what has happened and thinks he has the greatest luck–this morning; the trout are coming to him!
