[Song
We welcome you to school today, school today, school today.
We welcome you to school today, please come in and play.
[Morning verse
The earth is firm beneath my feet. The sun shines bright above.
One friend to the left. One friend to the right.
And here stand I so straight and strong.
All things to know and love.
[Song
Good morning dear Earth. Good morning dear Sun.
Good morning dear Trees, and Flowers everywhere.
Good morning dear Bees. And Birds in the trees.
Good morning to You, and good morning to Me.
[Poem/Song
With its warm golden sunshine, September is here.
Now that Summer is going, Autumn is coming.
[Song
Fairies of the story tales, Come and share your stories with me.
I am listening with my ears. I am sitting quietly.
[The story of Cinderella:
Once upon a time... there was a very sad young girl. She lived with her stepmother with two daughters. Her stepmother didn't like her. All the nice things, dresses, shoes, delicious food and comfortable beds, were for her own daughters. But, for the poor girl, there was nothing at all. Nothing? Please! No, nothing!
She had to work hard all day from morning to evening. Everybody called her Cinderella. "Oh dear, I'm so unhappy! I’m so sad!”.
Suddenly... something amazing happened. There was a burst of light and a fairy appeared. "Don't be afraid, Cinderella. I know you would love to go to the ball. And so you shall!"
With a flick of her magic wand... Cinderella got the most beautiful dress. “You need a coach! Give me a pumpkin! You need horses! Bring me seven mice!"
Cinderella soon returned with a fine pumpkin and seven mice. "Good!" said the fairy. With a flick of her magic wand... The pumpkin turned into a beautiful coach and the mice became six white horses and a coachman.
"You will see the Prince. You will dance with the prince. But remember! You must leave the ball at midnight and come home. Do you understand?" "Yes, I understand!"
When Cinderella entered the ballroom, everyone stopped to admire her elegance, her beauty and grace. "Who can that be? Who is she? Where is she from? Where does she come from?" The prince saw Cinderella. He walked over to her. He bowed deeply and asked her to dance. “May I dance with you?” And he danced with Cinderella all evening. "Who are you, fair maiden?"
Suddenly she heard the clock: the first stroke of
midnight
! She ran away and down the steps. She lost one of her slippers.
The Prince ran after her, picked up the slipper and said, "Soldiers, go and search everywhere for the girl whose foot this slipper fits. I will never be content until I find her!" So the ministers tried the slipper on the foot of all the girls... and on Cinderella's foot as well... Surprise! The slipper fitted perfectly.
The ministers said, "Come with us, fair maiden! The Prince is waiting for you!" So Cinderella joyfully went with them, and lived happily ever after with her Prince.
[Chant
In and out and round the house, round the house, round the house,
In and out and round the house, there is lots of things to do.
[Song twinkle twinkle little star
Twinkle, twinkle, little star! How I wonder what you are,
Up above the world so high, Like a diamond in the sky.
.../...
When the glorious sun is set, When the grass with dew is wet,
Then you show your little light, Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.
In the dark-blue sky you keep, And often through my curtains peep,
For you never shut your eye, Till the sun is in the sky.
As your bright and tiny spark Guides the traveller in the dark,
Though I know not what you are, Twinkle, twinkle, little star!
[Chant
My mother said I never should Play with the fairies In the wood.
They dance with fire. They roll in hay. They'll steal your heart Right a-way.

[Poem
When autumn comes, the weather's calm, The sun is not so strong:

The days are shorter than before, The nights are getting long.
[Story

Cinderella, this garden is for you.

The sun is up. The sky is blue. I want to plant some seeds.

The prince gives her some seeds.

Here are some seeds for you. Thank you, Prince.

Let's go into the garden and plant these seeds in the earth.

Let's see how they will grow, with the help of their friends.

[Poem
I dig, dig, dig, And I plant some seeds.

I rake, rake, rake, And I pull some weeds.
I wait and watch And soon I know,

My garden sprouts And starts to grow.

[Poem
In the heart of a seed, Buried deep so deep,

A dear little plant Lay fast asleep.
"Wake," said the sun, And creep to the light.

"Wake," said the voice Of the raindrops bright.
The little plant heard, And arose to see

What the wonderful Outside World might be.

[Story

Mother Earth, Mother earth, take our seed and give it birth.

Father Sun gleam and glow, until the roots begin to grow.

Sister Rain, Sister Rain, shed thy (your) tears to swell your grain.

Brother Wind breathe and blow then the blade all green will grow.

Earth and Sun and Wind and Rain turn to gold the living grain.

[Song The Flower Song   by Nancy Stewart 
Sow the seeds in the ground below

Add the sun and the rain See the flowers grow

I can see in front of me A daffodil as pretty as can be.

[Poem
In my little garden, by the apple/eucalyptus tree,

Daffodils are dancing. One, two, three.
In my little garden, by the apple/eucalyptus tree,

Daisies red are dancing. One, two, three.
In my little garden, by the apple/eucalyptus tree,

Roses bright are dancing. One, two, three.
In my little garden, by the apple/eucalyptus tree,

Hollyhocks are dancing. One, two, three.
In my little garden, by the apple/eucalyptus tree,

Violets are dancing. One, two, three.
In my little garden, by the apple/eucalyptus tree,

Pansies are dancing. One, two, three.

Story Jack Frost

Jack Frost was in the garden:

I saw him there at dawn;

He was dancing round the bushes

And prancing on the lawn.

He had a cloak of silver,

A hat all shimmering white,

A wand of glittering star-dust,

And shoes of sunbeam light.

Jack Frost was in the garden,

When I went out to play

He nipped my toes and fingers

And quickly ran away.

I chased him round the wood-shed,

But, oh! I’m sad to say

that though I chased him everywhere

He simply would stay.

Jack Frost was in the garden:

But now I’d like to know

Where I can find him hiding;

I’ve hunted high and low-

I’ve lost his cloak of silver,

His hat all shimmering white,

His wand of glittering star-dust,

His shoes of sunbeam light.
 
[Song
I saw three ships come sailing in On New Year's Day, on New Year's Day.
I saw three ships come sailing in On New Year's Day in the morning.
And all the bells on earth shall ring On New Year's Day, on New Year's Day...
And all the angels in heaven shall sing On New Year's Day, on New Year's Day...
And all the souls on earth shall sing On New Year's Day, on New Year's Day...
Then let us all rejoice amain! On New Year's Day, on New Year's Day...
 
Song
Bumblebee and butterfly, Spider and the beetle, Come around and dance with us, In winds before the winter.

Bumblebee and butterfly, Spider and the beetle, Come now to your Mother Earth, And rest there for the winter.

Thirty days have September,

February has twenty-eight,

But in leap-year, once in four,

February has one day more.

With my hands I clap, clap, clap.

With my feet, I tap, tap, tap.

One step here, one step there.

Round about as light as air. La, la, la.

With my finger I tick, tick, tick.

With my head, I nick, nick, nick.

One step here, one step there.

Round about as light as air. La, la, la.

Story Peter Rabbit

Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were-- Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail, and Peter. They lived with their Mother in a sand-bank, underneath the root of a very big fir-tree.

"Now, my dears," said old Mrs. Rabbit one morning, "you may go into the fields or down the lane, but don't go into Mr. McGregor's garden: your Father had an accident there; he was put in a pie by Mrs. McGregor. Now run along, and don't get into mischief. I am going out."

Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail, who were good little bunnies, went down the lane to gather blackberries; But Peter, who was very naughty, ran straight away to Mr. McGregor's garden, and squeezed under the gate!
 First he ate some lettuces and some French beans; and then he ate some radishes. But round the end of a cucumber frame… Mr. McGregor!
 Mr. McGregor jumped up and ran after Peter.

Peter was frightened; he rushed all over the garden. He lost his two shoes.

Mr. McGregor caught sight of him at the corner, but Peter slipped underneath the gate, and was safe at last in the wood outside the garden.

Story The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde
 

Every afternoon, the children play in the Giant's garden. It is a large lovely garden, with soft green grass. Here and there stand beautiful flowers like stars, and there are twelve peach-trees.
 One day the Giant comes back. He sees the children playing in the garden. 'What are you doing here? My garden is my garden.' So he builds a high wall, and puts up a notice-board: TRESPASSERS WILL BE PROSECUTED.

Then Spring comes, and all over the country there are little blossoms and little birds. Only in the garden of the Selfish Giant it is still Winter. The birds do not sing. The trees do not blossom.

'Why is Spring so late?' says the Selfish Giant. But the Spring never comes, nor the Summer and not the Autumn. So it is always Winter.

One morning the Giant is sleeping. He hears some lovely music. It sounds sweet. He sees children in his park. And Spring is here too.

Story Fable 'The Fox and the Crow'
 

Once upon a time a Fox sees a Crow with a piece of cheese in her beak. The Fox sits down beneath the tree and calls,

"Good day, Mistress Crow! How well you are looking! How bright your eyes! How glossy your feathers!"
 The Crow is pleased. She loves to be flattered.

"I am sure your voice is even more beautiful than your feathers," says the Fox.  "Won't you sing a song for me, O Queen of Birds?"

The Crow is so pleased she can hardly sit still.
She lifts her head high, closes her eyes. She opens her beak to sing: CAW-C-CAW-W-W
 The cheese falls to the ground, in front of the Fox. "Thank you Mistress Crow," he said to the unhappy bird.

Story The snake stole my egg

 

One day, Mother Hen was sitting on her nest. After a while, her legs felt very sore.

So, she decided to take a walk by the lake. All of a sudden, Mother Hen saw a snake passing by. He had a lump as big as an egg in his belly. The snake flicked his tongue and licked his lips. Then, he curled up and fell asleep.

“Oh, no!” cried Mother Hen. She ran to find Mother Duck. “Mother Duck, Mother Duck! The snake stole your egg and ate it!” “How do you know it was my egg?” asked Mother Duck. “Because the lump in his belly is as big as a duck egg!” said Mother Hen. So, mother Duck swam back home to count her eggs. One, two, three, four five. Not a single egg was missing. “Oh no, could it be…” cried Mother Duck. She ran to find Mother Goose.

“Mother Goose, Mother Goose! The snake stole your egg and ate it!” “How do you know it was my egg?” asked Mother Goose. “Because the lump in his belly is as big as a goose egg!” said Mother Duck. So, mother Goose swam back home to count her eggs. One, two, three, four five. Not a single egg was missing. “Oh no, could it be…” cried Mother Goose. She ran to find Mother Turtle.

“Mother Turtle, Mother Turtle! The snake stole your egg and ate it!” “How do you know it was my egg?” asked Mother Turtle. “Because the lump in his belly is as big as a turtle egg!” said Mother Goose. So, mother Turtle crawled back home to count her eggs. One, two, three, four five. Not a single egg was missing.

Mother Turtle said, “None of my eggs is missing.” Mother Goose said, “None of my eggs is missing.” Mother Duck said, “None of my eggs is missing.” “Mother Hen, did the snake steal one of your eggs?” “Oh, no! I did not think of that!” Mother Hen ran back home to count her eggs. “One, two, three, four… Oh no! The snake stole my egg!”

Everyone ran down to the lake. They grabbed the snake. They pulled him and twisted him. Finally, the chicken egg popped out the snake’s mouth. All of a sudden, crack! The shell of the egg cracked open. “Oh, my baby!” said Mother Hen.

She hugged her little chick and kissed him again and again. The snake is hiding in the grass again. He has a lump as big as an egg in his belly. Can you guess whose egg he stole this time?

[Song:
Good morning dear earth. Good morning dear Sun.
Good morning dear Trees. And flowers everywhere.
Good morning dear bees, And flowers in the trees.
Good morning to you. And good morning to me.
[Song:
Fairies of the story tales. Come and share your stories with me.
I am listening with my ears. I am sitting quietly.
[Genesis 1.
In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth.
And the earth was without form and void.
And darkness ruled on the face of the depths.
And the spirit of God brooded on the face of the waters.
And God said, 'Let there be light,' and there was light.
And God saw that the light was good,
and God separated the light and the darkness.
And God called the light day, and the darkness night.
So evening came, and morning came, the first day.
[Genesis 1
http://www.coloring.ws/creation.htm
On the first day, God separated light from darkness.
On the second day, God made the sky and the water.
On the third day, God made dry land and plants.
On the fourth day, God made the sun, moon and stars.
On the fifth day, God made the birds in the sky and the fish in the oceans.
On the sixth day, God made the animals and man.
On the seventh day, God rested.
[Poem
All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful. The Lord God made them all.
Each little flower that opens, Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors, He made their tiny wings.
The purple-headed mountain, The river running by,
The sunset, and the morning That brightens up the sky.
The cold wind in the winter, The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden, He made them every one.
[Poem
Hands to work and feet to run, God's good gifts for me and you:
Hands and feet he gave to us To help each other the whole day through.
Eyes to see and ears to hear, God's good gifts for me and you:
Eyes and ears he gave to us To help each other the whole day through.
Minds to think and hearts to love, God's good gifts for me and you:
Minds and hearts he gave to us To help each other the whole day through.
[Poem LITTLE THINGS
Little drops of water Little grains of sand,
Make the mighty ocean, And the pleasant land.
Thus little moments, Humble though they be,
Make the mighty ages Of eternity.
Thus our little errors Lead the soul away
From the path of virtue, Off in sin to stray.
Little deeds of kindness, Little words of love,
Make our earth an Eden, Like the heaven above.
[Song
We are one with the infinite sun Forever and ever and ever.
We are one with the infinite sun Forever and ever and ever.
[Story of Noah's Ark
http://www.coloring.ws/noah.htm
God looked down at his people and was very disappointed. The people on His earth were cruel and bad. All except one, his name was Noah. God decided to send a flood to wash away all the bad people. He told Noah to build a big boat, so that he and his family would be saved from the flood.
God gave Noah a very important mission. He asked Noah to save the animals. Noah searched everywhere to find two of every kind of animal on the earth. All of the animals came to Noah's ark and entered, two by two.
For forty days and forty nights, Noah, his family and all of the animals stayed on the ark as the rain poured down. Finally, when the rain had stopped, Noah sent a dove to search for dry land. The dove returned and placed an olive twig in Noah's hand. The twig meant the trees were in bud on dry land. The flood was over.
Noah, his family and all the animals left the ark and thanked God for saving them. God said "I promise I will never again send such a flood. And each time it rains, I'll send a rainbow to remind you of my promise to you."
[Song The Animals went in Two by Two
The animals went in two by two, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in two by two, The elephant and the kangaroo
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in three by three, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in three by three, The wasp, the ant and the bumble bee,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in four by four, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in four by four, The big hippopotamus stuck in the door,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in five by five, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in five by five, By hugging each other they kept alive,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in six by six, hurrah, hurrah.
The animals went in six by six, They turned out the monkey because of his tricks,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in seven by seven, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in seven by seven, The little pig thought it was going to heaven,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in eight by eight, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in eight by eight, The turtle thought he was coming late,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in nine by nine, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in nine by nine, Marching up in a long straight line,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in ten by ten, hurrah, hurrah,
The animals went in ten by ten, The last one in was the little red hen,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.

SMZ ES Grade 23 October

[Poem
When autumn comes, the weather's calm, The sun is not so strong:
The days are shorter than before, The nights are getting long.
Summer flowers are fading now And die in late September:
Yellow and red October leaves must fall in grey November.
[Song
The harvest time again is here, for all both and near.
It is the time we gather food to last us all the year.
[The seven steps to build an earth oven.
Step 1: I dig. I learn to recognize top soil and subsoil.
Top soil= dark, full of life, often more fertile with less clay. Sub soil= color varies, less plant life, often rich in clay.
Step 2: I build the foundation and the floor. The foundation needs to :
1. support the weight of the oven 2. keep the whole structure rigid 3. protect against moisture and rain 4. raise the oven
Step 3: I make a sand form
Step 4: I mix the mud. I am making 'cob' = earth + sand.
Step 5: I apply layers of mud onto the sand form.
Step 6: I cut the door and remove the sand.
Step 7: I finish plasters and sculpting.
+ Outdoor work to build it.
[Song
In and out and round the house, round the house, round the house,
In and out and round the house, there is lots of work to do.

Story Dart the Little Duck
 

Dart is a very special little duck. He has bright shiny green feathers and short legs. He can swim faster than the other ducks. But Dart can not fly. His wings are too short and small. 

Dart often looks up into the sky and says. "If I could be like the other ducks, flying in the sky, then everything would be just great!" Candy, standing by his side, encourages Dart, "Wait until you grow up and you will be able to fly."

It's October. It's getting cold. The other ducks are preparing for their trip to the south. Dart is sad. He thinks. "Everyone is going to fly to a warmer place. I will be the only one who is staying here for the long winter."

Dart's Father and Mother are worried. "Flying to the south is our tradition and we have better set off. But, if we don't leave now, we will not make it in time." Dart goes to the highest branch and... and jumps! I can do it. I can do it ! Dart falls down, faster and faster, but soon... opens his wings! And there he goes... flying... flying!

"Congratulations! Let's go now! Let's go to the south!"

Story Saint Nicholas 3
Three little boys playing in a field. At harvest time they often went with their parents to glean the grain. They gathered flowers, having fun while following the butterflies' flight. One day, they want to go to the city. They see its towers, its palace, and all three wanted to see up close. The little boys were never allowed to go away by themselves. They forget. In the streets, they walk happily. Our little boys are astonished. In their eyes the City seems like magic. But when evening comes, they are sad and hungry, they do not know how to go home. A sign hangs: House of the Butcher. "Butcher, open for us . . ," they call. "We are lost, we want a place to stay. May we eat, may we sleep?" The door opens. They go in. What does the butcher do to our three boys? When they come in, the wicked butcher holds a sharp knife behind his back. He kills them, cuts them up, and puts them inside his large salting tub.

In December, one evening, the City rests. It snows, it is cold. No citizen dares to go out in the night. The doors are closed . . . . When suddenly, over there, a pink glow descends and comes down the street. It is a great Bishop, with very gentle ways. He knocks on the door and says: "Open to us." The butcher comes to see . . . his knees are trembling. "Noble visitor, what do you want from me?" It is Saint Nicolas who knocks three taps. Those little boys, he cannot forget. "I want you to eat and sleep in my home. —My best ham, I offer you," replied the butcher. "No, you will open the very large salting tub where you butchered Saint Nicolas says: "Rise up, children, I want to bless you. Be joyful and happy, as birds in a nest, singing in the spring time. Go back to your good parents." And each small one wakes up, singing. It was also necessary to punish the butcher. For his punishment, the saint changed him into Pére Fouettard, and condemned him to follow in shame, hated by all . . . taking him away for all eternity. Holy Saint, let us thank God. The little boys return to their homes, kissing their joyful parents. Since this day, from the high heavens, Saint Nicolas watches over and fulfills children's wishes. And Saint Nicolas, on the sixth of December, Comes down from the sky, for the kind child, asleep in bed, he brings the most beautiful toys . . . by the chimney, making no sound. But the naughty child waits for nothing.

Story The Whitsun Daisy Flower
 

Once upon a time, there is a little white flower in the meadow. She wants to fly. She wants to run. But she can not. Her roots grow into earth. She can not move.

One day she hears singing. The flower raises her head. She sees a white dove sitting on a branch.
"Bird, bird! How beautiful you are. Look at me.

I have no legs to run with. I have no wings to fly with. I have no friends to play with. I have nothing to do in the world."

“No. You are a flower. You are a child of Father Sun and Mother Earth. You have to hold a gift, a golden treasure, a tiny flame from Father Sun.

Wait for me. I will fetch it and bring it to you.”
The white dove flies into the sky and returns.

He is carrying in his beak a tiny, golden flame from Father Sun himself.

The dove gently lays the tiny flame and the flower opens, shining, sparkling. There appears a heart of brightest gold.

"Bees! Butterflies! Come to me! Come to me!"

[Song:
Good morning dear earth. Good morning dear Sun.

Good morning dear Trees. And flowers everywhere.
Good morning dear bees, And flowers in the trees.

Good morning to you. And good morning to me.
[Song:
Fairies of the story tales. Come and share your stories with me.

I am listening with my ears. I am sitting quietly.
[Genesis 1.
In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth.

And the earth was without form and void.
And darkness ruled on the face of the depths.

And the spirit of God brooded on the face of the waters.
And God said, 'Let there be light,' and there was light.

And God saw that the light was good,

And God separated the light and the darkness.
And God called the light day, and the darkness night.

So evening came, and morning came, the first day.
[Genesis 1
http://www.coloring.ws/creation.htm
On the first day, God separated light from darkness.
On the second day, God made the sky and the water.
On the third day, God made dry land and plants.
On the fourth day, God made the sun, moon and stars.
On the fifth day, God made the birds in the sky and the fish in the oceans.
On the sixth day, God made the animals and man.
On the seventh day, God rested.
[Poem
All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small,

All things wise and wonderful. The Lord God made them all.
Each little flower that opens, Each little bird that sings,

He made their glowing colors, He made their tiny wings.
The purple-headed mountain, The river running by,

The sunset, and the morning That brightens up the sky.
The cold wind in the winter, The pleasant summer sun,

The ripe fruits in the garden, He made them every one.
[Poem
Hands to work and feet to run, God's good gifts for me and you:

Hands and feet he gave to us To help each other the whole day through.
Eyes to see and ears to hear, God's good gifts for me and you:

Eyes and ears he gave to us To help each other the whole day through.
Minds to think and hearts to love, God's good gifts for me and you:

Minds and hearts he gave to us To help each other the whole day through.
[Poem LITTLE THINGS
Little drops of water Little grains of sand,

Make the mighty ocean, And the pleasant land.
Thus little moments, Humble though they be,

Make the mighty ages Of eternity.
Thus our little errors Lead the soul away

From the path of virtue, Off in sin to stray.
Little deeds of kindness, Little words of love,

Make our earth an Eden, Like the heaven above.
[Song
We are one with the infinite sun Forever and ever and ever.

We are one with the infinite sun Forever and ever and ever.
[Story of Noah's Ark
http://www.coloring.ws/noah.htm
God looked down at his people and was very disappointed. The people on His earth were cruel and bad. All except one, his name was Noah. God decided to send a flood to wash away all the bad people. He told Noah to build a big boat, so that he and his family would be saved from the flood.
God gave Noah a very important mission. He asked Noah to save the animals. Noah searched everywhere to find two of every kind of animal on the earth. All of the animals came to Noah's ark and entered, two by two.
For forty days and forty nights, Noah, his family and all of the animals stayed on the ark as the rain poured down. Finally, when the rain had stopped, Noah sent a dove to search for dry land. The dove returned and placed an olive twig in Noah's hand. The twig meant the trees were in bud on dry land. The flood was over.
Noah, his family and all the animals left the ark and thanked God for saving them. God said "I promise I will never again send such a flood. And each time it rains, I'll send a rainbow to remind you of my promise to you."
[Song The Animals went in Two by Two
The animals went in two by two, hurrah, hurrah,

The animals went in two by two, The elephant and the kangaroo
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in three by three, hurrah, hurrah,

The animals went in three by three, The wasp, the ant and the bumble bee,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in four by four, hurrah, hurrah,

The animals went in four by four, The big hippopotamus stuck in the door,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in five by five, hurrah, hurrah,

The animals went in five by five, By hugging each other they kept alive,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in six by six, hurrah, hurrah.

The animals went in six by six, They turned out the monkey because of his tricks,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in seven by seven, hurrah, hurrah,

The animals went in seven by seven, The little pig thought it was going to heaven,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in eight by eight, hurrah, hurrah,

The animals went in eight by eight, The turtle thought he was coming late,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in nine by nine, hurrah, hurrah,

The animals went in nine by nine, Marching up in a long straight line,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.
The animals went in ten by ten, hurrah, hurrah,

The animals went in ten by ten, The last one in was the little red hen,
And they all went into the ark, for to get out of the rain.

[Poem
When autumn comes, the weather's calm, The sun is not so strong:

The days are shorter than before, The nights are getting long.
Summer flowers are fading now And die in late September:

Yellow and red October leaves must fall in grey November.
[Song
The harvest time again is here, for all both and near.

It is the time we gather food to last us all the year.
[The seven steps to build an earth oven.
Step 1: I dig. I learn to recognize top soil and subsoil.
Top soil= dark, full of life, often more fertile with less clay. Sub soil= color varies, less plant life, often rich in clay.
Step 2: I build the foundation and the floor. The foundation needs to :
1. support the weight of the oven 2. keep the whole structure rigid 3. protect against moisture and rain 4. raise the oven
Step 3: I make a sand form
Step 4: I mix the mud. I am making 'cob' = earth + sand.
Step 5: I apply layers of mud onto the sand form.
Step 6: I cut the door and remove the sand.
Step 7: I finish plasters and sculpting.
+ Outdoor work to build it.

[Story Saint Nicholas 3

 

Three little boys are playing in a field. At harvest time they often go with their parents to glean the grain. They gather flowers. They have fun.

One day, they want to go to the city. They see the towers, the palace. They want to go. They forget. In the streets, they walk happily. The City is beautiful.

But when evening comes, they are sad and hungry. They don’t know how to go home. They see the House of the Butcher. "Butcher, open for us. We are lost. We want a place to stay. May we eat? May we sleep?"

The door opens. They go in. The wicked butcher holds a sharp knife behind his back. He kills them, cuts them up, and puts them inside his large salting tub.

 

In December, one evening, the City rests. It snows. It is cold. Nobody dares to go out in the night. The doors are closed . . . . When slowly, over there, a pink glow descends and comes down the street.

It is a great Bishop, with very gentle ways. He knocks on the door and says: "Open to us." The butcher comes to see. He is afraid. "Noble visitor, what do you want from me?" It is Saint Nicolas who knocks three taps. Those little boys, he cannot forget. "I want you to eat and sleep in my home. — My best ham, I offer you," replied the butcher. "No, you will open the very large salting tub where you butchered.”

Saint Nicolas says: "Rise up, children, I want to bless you. Be joyful and happy, as birds in a nest, singing in the spring time. Go back to your good parents."

Since this day, from the high heavens, Saint Nicolas watches over and fulfills children's wishes. And on the sixth of December he comes down from the sky, for the kind child, asleep in bed, he brings the most beautiful toys . . . by the chimney, making no sound.

Story of 'The Monkey King'
 
Many years ago, a group of monkeys lived in a deep forest. One day, when they were playing upon a rock, suddenly, a big stone shook right and left. HONG !
The stone exploded and small stones flew everywhere. The monkeys were shocked and ran to hide themselves.
A few minutes later, they came out and saw a monkey with golden hair jumping out from the stone. They played together.
The stone monkey was speedy and brave. There was a huge waterfall in the forest. No one dared to go in there, but he jumped down directly.
He found a huge cave behind the waterfall. There were many natural stone beds, stone tables and stone chairs.
All the monkeys moved in and they called this place 'Shoei-Lian-Dong'. The stone monkey became the leader of them.
One day, an old monkey died. 'I can't stay here for my whole life. I have to find out the magic of immortality.' He thought.
He traveled over hills and rivers, and found an immortal in the deep mountain finally. After eight years, he fulfilled his wish.
When he left, the immortal gave him a piece of flying cloud. With it, the stone monkey could travel one thousand miles a day.
As he flew back to Shoei-Lian-Dong, he saw a monster there. The stone monkey defeated the monster easily and drove him easily.
He then thought he should have his own weapon. So he went to the dragon king and borrowed a pillar from his palace.
The magic rod could be larger and smaller, longer and shorter as you wished. With the magic rod, he defeated other monsters.
But he also made troubles in Heaven. One day, he was bored. He ate all the magic peaches that grew every one hundred years.
Thus, the Jade Emperor degraded him to take care of the horses. The monkey felt insulted. He refused the new job.
He fought with the soldiers in Heaven. Although he thought he was peerless, Buddha defeated him at last.
To punish the stone monkey, Buddha trapped him under the Five Finger Mountain for five hundred years.
Actually, he was the famous monkey, Suen-Wuh-Kong, who accompanied Tarng-San-Tzang to the west in search of Buddha's holy book.

Introduction to great people... Rama:

Rama or Ramachandra is a legendary or historical king of Ancient India. In Hinduism, he is considered to be the seventh avatar of Vishnu.

Born as the eldest son of Kausalya and Dasaratha, king of Kosala, he is the embodiment of the supreme Brahman. Rama is the 'perfect man'.

Rama's life is one of the perfect adherence to dharma. For the sake of his fathers's honour, Rama abandons his claims to the throne to serve an exile of fourteen years in the forest with his wife Sita. But she is kidnapped by Ravana, the king of Lanka. After a long search, Rama fights a colossal war against Ravana's armies. Finally Rama liberates Sit, returns to be crowned king in Ayodhya and eventually becomes Emperor of the World, after which he reigns for eleven thousand years, an era of perfect happiness, peace, prosperity and justice known as Rama Rajya.

THE STORY OF WINTER http://sciweb.nybg.org/science2/Onlinexhibits/THE%20STORY%20OF%20WINTER.htm 

The ancient Romans employed myths of gods and goddesses to explain occurrences in the natural world. The Roman myth of Proserpina explains why there is winter.

One day, when Proserpina, daughter of Ceres, the goddess of agriculture, was gathering flowers in the fields, she was abducted by Pluto, god of the underworld, and carried off to his kingdom. Ceres was consumed with grief and in anger she scorched the earth, preventing grain from growing and the earth from producing fruit. Forced to intervene, Jupiter negotiated a compromise that provided Proserpina had not eaten anything while in the underworld she would be set free. Pluto however had offered Proserpina part of a pomegranate, which she accepted. The Fates would not allow Proserpina to be fully released, but a settlement was agreed upon by which she would spend part of the year with Pluto in the underworld (winter) and part of the year with her mother Ceres (summer). When Proserpina is with Pluto the earth is barren and cold and when she returns to her mother, Ceres pours forth the blessings of spring to welcome her beloved daughter home.

Story: The Little Seed

 

 Once upon a time, in Leichuan School, there is a little seed lying in the earth. She is waiting and waiting. One day an ant passes by, chattering and chattering. The little seed asks: “What did you say?” “What? Why? Oh. Spring is coming. Quick!”

 Just then her friend, the worm passes by. “Worm, worm, is it true what the ant has told me? Is spring really coming?” The worm replies: “Maybe yes, maybe not. But I am sure that the soil up above was warmer than usual this morning. So spring might be coming!”

 The little seed is very excited. “If Spring is coming, then I must start growing!” She begins to push a white root down into the earth, and at the same time she pushes upwards a delicate white shoot. The little seed grows and grows until... oh dear, what is that?

 A big rock sat in her way. It is as hard as iron and fixed firmly in the earth. What can I do? What shall I do? As she is wondering what she should do, she hears a CRACK in the center of the stone. She slips the tip of the shoot in the hole, and grows and grows.

 All of a sudden, the darkness falls and the world is full of warmth and light. The plant has sprouted and grows into a tall beautiful flower...

 

Story: The Little Seed

 

 Once upon a time, in Leichuan School, there is a little seed lying in the earth. She is waiting and waiting. One day an ant passes by, chattering and chattering. The little seed asks: “What did you say?” “What? Why? Oh. Spring is coming. Quick!”

 Just then her friend, the worm passes by. “Worm, worm, is it true what the ant has told me? Is spring really coming?” The worm replies: “Maybe yes, maybe not. But I am sure that the soil up above was warmer than usual this morning. So spring might be coming!”

 The little seed is very excited. “If Spring is coming, then I must start growing!” She begins to push a white root down into the earth, and at the same time she pushes upwards a delicate white shoot. The little seed grows and grows until... oh dear, what is that?

 A big rock sat in her way. It is as hard as iron and fixed firmly in the earth. What can I do? What shall I do? As she is wondering what she should do, she hears a CRACK in the center of the stone. She slips the tip of the shoot in the hole, and grows and grows.

 All of a sudden, the darkness falls and the world is full of warmth and light. The plant has sprouted and grows into a tall beautiful flower...

 

Story the Chinese horoscope

 

There were twelve different animals representing each year by turns in the Chinese zodiac. They were the mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, cock, dog and pig.

It was said that the Jade Emperor wanted to choose twelve different animals to be the protectors of newborn babies every year.

After the news came out, all animals knew about the zodiac contest. At that time, the mouse and the cat were good friends. ‘The Jade Emperor said the first twelve animals would be winners.’ The mouse told the cat excitedly. Thus, the cat had a deal with the mouse to help each other to win the contest.

Almost all kinds of animals were looking forward to the contest except the lion. ‘I am the king of the beasts already. There is no need to take part in the contest.’ The yawning lion said. However, the dragon that could go up to the sky and go down in the sea did not think that way. ‘As a noble dragon, I should not miss the chance.’ He thought.

At first, the dragon had no horns on his head. To make himself more beautiful, the dragon went to the cock to borrow its horns. ‘With heavy horns on your head, how can you run fast tomorrow? Why don’t you lend them to me?’ The dragon found the centipede to guarantee that he would return them back, so the cock agreed.

The next morning, the Jade Emperor waited at the contest site. The mouse got up very early and started out. He did not wake up the cat because he thought the cat was faster than he. All kinds of animals headed for the destination all the way. At last, they came to a wide river. “I can’t swim.” Many of them stopped and said.

At this time, there came the kind-hearted ox. “Would you please give us a ride?” they asked. “No problem.” The ox said. Soon, many animals jumped on his back, including the mouse, rabbit, snake, cock and so on. As the mouse held on to his horns, he jumped off when the ox was near the shore. Therefore, the mouse was the first and the ox the second.

The next winners in order were the tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, cock, dog and pig. Thus the Jade Emperor declared that the twelve animals got the great job. Every twelve years, they took turns to take care of newborn babies of each year. Since then, everyone belonged to his own zodiac.

From then on, the cat always tried to eat the mouse for his betrayal; the dragon never gave the horns back. The cock could only go to the centipede, but the centipede not only laughed at him but also called him “an idiot” The cock was so angry that his cockscomb turned red. That is the reason why cats catch mice and cocks eat centipedes.

 

Story dartagnan

 

Once in France, a good swordsman called D’Artagnan was eager to be part of the royal musketry. One day, he brought his father’s recommendation letter to visit the chief of the musketry.

On his was to Paris, D’Artagnan met a man with a scar on his face. They had a big duel for something. D’Artagnan was knocked out soon because they had too many people.

When D’Artagnan woke up, he found the letter was gone. D’Artagnan raced to the town to see the chide of the musketry. Just before he opened his mouth to explain, he saw the man with the scar passing by.

“Wait! Give my letter back!” D’Artagnan ran after him immediately, but he carelessly bumped into a knight whose arm was bandaged. As D’Artagnan was focusing on chasing the scar-faced man, he did not stop to apologize. The knight was angry and followed up to get him.

Later, D’Artagnan bumped against another man and lost the scar-faced man in a lane. He was so upset that he kicked a pebble on the ground with all his strength. Unfortunately, the pebble hit another knight passing by.

When D’Artagnan was saying sorry to the knight, the two men he offended earlier caught up and blamed D’Artagnan together. Finally, the three men forgave D’Artagnan and they became friends. To D’Artagnan’s surprise, the three men were the famous three musketeers. They accepted his apologies and made friends with him.

At this moment, the scar-faced man led a bunch of his gang back to bring D’Artagnan trouble. The three musketeers helped D’Artagnan to fight them away.

The next day, D’Artagnan happened to see a lady bullied by bad guys. He helped the lady out and chased them away.

“My name is Amanda, the maid of the queen. The queen gave her diamond necklace from the king to the ambassador of the neighboring country for promoting their relations. The bishop knew it, so he asked the queen to wear that necklace on the king’s birthday party. The queen anxiously sent me to get it back, but I was tagged by the bishop’s followers and couldn’t carry out the task.” Amanda told D’Artagnan the whole story.

“Don’t worry. I’ll take care of it for you.” D’Artagnan promised her with confidence. The three musketeers also joined D’Artagnan after they knew about it. Although the bishop kept sending people to stop them, D’Artagnan still completed the task with the help of the three musketeers. Also, the misunderstanding between the king and the queen was avoided.

Later on, the war broke out. D’Artagnan and the three musketeers fought side by side and won many battles. The king was deeply impressed by D’Artagnan, and so he appointed him to be the vice chief of the royal musketry. D’Artagnan’s dream came true.

Once upon a time, in France, there was a young man called D’Artagnan. He was a very good swordsman. He was eager to be part of the royal musketry. When the time came, he brought his father’s recommendation letter to visit the chief of the musketry.

 

On his way to Paris, D’Artagnan met a man with a scar on his face. They had a big duel with him. D’Artagnan was knocked out soon because they had too many people.

 

When D’Artagnan woke up and recovered his consciousness, he found the recommendation letter was gone. D’Artagnan hurried to the town and found the chief of the musketry. Just before he opened his mouth to explain, he saw the man with the scar passing by.

 

“Wait! You thief! Give my letter back!” D’Artagnan ran after him immediately. But he bumped into a swordsman with one arm was bandaged carelessly. D’Artagnan was fully focusing on chasing the Scarred Face. He did not stop to apologize. That made the swordsman very unhappy. He followed D'Artagnan to make him say sorry.

 

Later, D’Artagnan bumped against another man. He did not make an apology again. At the end, D'Artagnan lost the Scarred Face in a lane. He felt so upset that he hit a pebble on the ground with all his might. Unfortunately, the pebble hit another swordsman passing by.

 

When D’Artagnan was apologizing to the knight, the two men he offended earlier caught up and blamed D’Artagnan together. The three men that D'Artagnan bumped against were originally the well-known 'Three Musketeers'. After D'Artagnan's explanations and apologies, the three men forgave him and became friends.

 

At this moment, the Scarred Face led a bunch of his gang back to bring D’Artagnan troubles. The three musketeers helped D’Artagnan to fight them away. The next day, D’Artagnan accidentally saw a lady bullied by bad guys. He saved the lady and chased them away.

I couldn’t do what I was committed to.” Amanda told D’Artagnan the whole story.

 

“Don’t worry. I will take care of it for you.” D’Artagnan promised her with confidence. After hearing the story, the three musketeers all joined D’Artagnan's mission. Although the bishop kept sending people to stop them, D’Artagnan still completed the task and avoided the misunderstanding between the king and the queen to happen.

In the morning the sun wakes up everyone, then he rises up above to share his love, and at night, the sun sets, and we too go to our beds.

Boom! Boom! What is that? What is that noise? Brother Gnome, what is that? I don't know yet. Sister Gnome. Let's go and see.

...

I see one. two, three, four, five... people. They wear 'farming' clothes. They have tools, all kinds of tools. They dig. They have hoes, shovels, rakes, trowells, watering cans and big bags of fertilizer. I wonder what is inside.

fire, ashes, coal.

They have something strange. It's long, narrow, thin, flat with many numbers on it. Let me see, 1, 10, 100, 1000, 10000... and cm, dm, m. And they count.

shapes of square, circle, rectangle, surface, area.

Hahaha. They sweat. They feel tired. They are exhausted. And the wind blows. Is it the North Wind? East Wind? West Wind? South Wind?

Flood! Flood! Flood! Alert! Water! Rain! Tehy water. It is a swimming pool. We need to leave... Create a layer of clay.

And what is this now? They drop seeds.
