Song 'In and out and round the house'
with gestures and movements related to house cleaning
sweeping the floor, mopping the floor, clean up windows, clean up table, wash bowls
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
To introduce the 'Moon Festival', we started with the story of Hou Yi and Chang'E. Story telling first and then role playing.
Story
A long, long, long time ago, there were ten suns in the sky. Each took its turn. 
But one day all ten suns appeared together. The Emperor Yao asked for help. 
'Please help me to kill all but one of the suns!  
I will give a pill, an elixir of life to the one who succeeds.’ 
There came Houyi. He was a famous archer. He shot nine suns. He saved the Earth. 
The Emperor rewarded Houyi with a pill, the elixir of life, and advised him:  
"Make no haste to swallow this pill, but first prepare yourself with prayer and fasting for a year". 
Houyi took the pill home. He hid it under a rafter. He began healing his spirit.  
In the midst of this, Houyi was called again by the emperor.  
While he was gone, Chang'e noticed a white beam of light from the roof. 
She discovered the pill. She swallowed it. Immediately, she found that she could fly.
Just at that moment, Houyi returned home. He realized what had happened. He shouts:  
'Chang'e, come back, stay with me!’ But Chang flew out the window into the sky.  
Chang’e is now trapped on the Moon. She is alone with her pet the Jade Rabbit and Wu Kang. 
Now, every year, between September and October, the Moon Bridge appears for one night only. 
It connects the Earth to the Moon. During this one night, Chang’e and Hou Yi can meet together. 
Look carefully at the moon. You might see Chang’e and Houyi.
Story telling then role playing
Review the sentence patterns 'I am' 'You are'  with sand bags.
Introduce 'He is Hou Yi' and 'She is Chang'E'
Game 'Who is missing?'
Teacher Oliver covers one student's eyes. Another student hides behind Teacher's desk.
The student opens his eyes and guesses who is missing.
Practice 'He is Thibault' or 'She is Victoria'

2009 September 14 ~ 20
Review Story Chang'E and Hou Yi
Replay game 'Who is missing?'
Explanation and skits related to 'Please help me'

Introduction song:
Fairies of the story tales, come and share your stories with me
I am listening with my ears, I am sitting quietly.
Story of Alice in Wonderland
Story telling with plenty of gestures and movements.
One late summer afternoon, Alice is sitting under a tree with her sister and reading books.
Suddenly she sees a little rabbit with glasses passing by, dropping a fan and pair of gloves.
Wait for me, rabbit! Wait for me! But the rabbit jumps into a hole.
Alice follows him. But the rabbit jumps a small hole. Alice is too big. She cries.
She sees a glass of juice. She drinks it. She becomes smaller and smaller.
Wait for me, rabbit! Wait for me! But the rabbit enters a house.
The rabbit opens the door, goes in, closes the door. Alice opens the door, goes in and closes the door.
The rabbit opens a small door, goes outside and closes the door. Alice is too big. She cries.
She sees a glass of juice. She drinks it. She becomes bigger and bigger. Too big inside the house.
Many animals throw pebbles to her. She eats one and becomes smaller and smaller.
To look for the rabbit, she goes into a garden. She sees soldiers painting white roses red.
What are you doing? We are painting white roses red. The queen doesn't like white.
You can not do this! You are not nice! I am the Queen and I will....
Alice, Alice, wake up, wake up! Time to go home...
What did you listen? What did you understand?
Recollection of the words heard.
Practice 'How are you today?' 'I'm fine, thank you' in class.
Then go outdoor to play 'Catch me' game to practice 'How are you?'

Pentatonic song:
Bumble bee and butterfly, spider and the beetle,
Come around and dance with us in winds before the winter.
One late summer afternoon, Teacher Oliver was reading a book...
(opening a DIY made book about Milarepa, telling the story to everyone...)
The magic life of Milarepa. It is the year 1050. When I was seven years old, my father was sick. He died. My uncle and aunt are very mean. My mother said: I want you to study magic. I come back and destroy the whole house. But I am sad. I travel and travel. I meet Marpa. I meditate and meditate, until I become a buddha.
Poem
Do all the good you can
By all the ways you can
In all the means you can
In all the places you can
At all the times you can
To all the people you can
As long as ever you can
+ writing on the black board
Poem + Slow Dance
Twelve children together are we
Merry and bright as you can,
Twelve children hand in hand
In one circle here we stand.
Let's move and you will see, 12 is 1 lot of 12.
Let's move and you will see, 12 is 2 lots of 6.
Let's move and you will see, 12 is 3 lots of 4.
Let's move and you will see, 12 is 4 lots of 3.
Let's move and you will see, 12 is 6 lots of 2.
Let's move and you will see, 12 is 12 lots of 1.
12 = 1 x 12, 12 = 2 x 6, 12 = 3 x 4,...
12 / 1 = 12, 12 / 2 = 6, 12 / 3 = 4, ...
Chant + Dance
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, all good children go to heaven.
Some go up and some go down,
And some go all around the town.

Story of Saint Nicholas
Three little boys playing the fields. At harvest time, they often go the fields with their parents to glean the grain. They play ball. They dance around. They follow butterflies.
One day, they want to go the city. They see the houses, the roofs, the castle and the towers. Father, mother, may we go to the city? No, you may not. But they forget, and they walk to the city. They walk happily all day long, but, when the sun sets, people go back home, when it's getting dark, the three little boys are lost, hungry and tired.
They see the light in the house of the butcher. They knock on the door. Please, let us in. We are lost. We are hungry. We are tired. The butcher opens the door, takes his knife, kills them, cuts them and puts them into his salting tub.
One day, it's December. It's snowing. It's cold. It's dark. All is calm, when a pink glow slowly comes down, comes down to the city, and walks down the street. It is a bishop, the great bishop Saint Nicholas. He knocks on the door. The butcher opens the door. He is very afraid. Please, please, come in... May I give you some ham? some pork? No, I want you to open your salting tub!
And the three little boys come out. Come, little boys, I want to bless you. Be joyful and happy, like birds in a nest, singing in springtime. Go back to your good parents.

Ending verse:

Enter the night, and you will find the light.

Enter the night, let your spirit take flight.

On the longest night, we search for the light.

So when you find that spark,

When you dream in the dark,

Hold it close to your heart and know,

All that you see is all that can be

When you give birth to your dreams.

Well, I only have cinder cake and sour beer. We can sit down and eat. I open my lunch box… Oh! What happened? I see a fine sweet cake and good wine. Let’s eat! Let’s drink!

Since you have a good heart, and are willing to divide what you have, I will give you good luck. There stands an old tree. Cut it down. You will find something at the roots.

Well, I see the tree. I cut it. Oh! A golden goose! A golden goose! Let’s bring it home.
