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 song and poem verses. 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 Stone Soup. A young girl was traveling and Found herself lost, hungry, and tired. She stopped in a village and asked for a place to stay and some food to eat. An old man offered her a warm bed by the fire but said he had no food to share.
“That’s okay, she said, “I have a magic stone that makes the most delicious soup.”
