Chinese New Year, mouse, Valentines' Day
Short story related to Chinese New Year and mouse
Chinese New Year = February 7th 2008
http://www.dltk-teach.com/fables/lion/mstory.htm 
Poem:
A little garden flower Is lying in its bed
A warm spring sun Is shining overhead
Down came the rain drops Dancing to and fro-
The little flower wakens And then begins to grow.
Song:
Round and round the garden goes the little mouse
Up, up, up he creeps up into his house.
 Song:
In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight,
In the jungle, the quiet jungle, the lion sleeps tonight.
Near the village, the peaceful village, the lion sleeps tonight,
Near the village, the peaceful village, the lion sleeps tonight.
Hush my darling, don't fear my darling, the lion sleeps tonight,
Hush my darling, don't fear my darling, the lion sleeps tonight.

 Story:
Once upon a time, a Lion is asleep.
A little Mouse begins running up and down upon him.
This soon wakes the Lion.
He places his huge paw upon him.
He opens his big jaws to swallow him.
 Poem:
King of beasts, the Lion
Has velvet-padded paws
Majestic mane to crown his head
And strong and cavernous jaws
 Story:
"Pardon me, O King," cries the little Mouse.
"Forgive me this time, I shall never forget it.
Who knows but what I may be able to do you a turn some of these days?"
The Lion is so tickled at the idea of the Mouse being able to help him.
He lifts up his paw and lets him go.
 Story:
Some time after the Lion is caught in a trap.
The hunters want to carry him alive to the King.
They tie him to a tree.
Just then the little Mouse happens to pass by.
She sees the sad plight in which the Lion is.
She goes up to him.
She eats away the ropes that bind the King of the Beasts. 
"Was I not right?" said the little Mouse.
 Song: Lavender 37 / 47
Round about the wood they go
Creeping on the mossy floor
While the birds and flowers are sleeping
Little mice! Little mice!
If a footfall they should hear
See them stop in sudden fear
Then with tiny cries and squeaking
Homeward fly, a refuge seeking
Little mice! Little mice!
 Chant:
One, two, three, four, Posting letters
Through our door Who's got a letter?
Who are they for?
One's for Ali One's for Sue
One's for me And one's for you!

Spring 16 song with partitions
Spring is coming, Spring is coming, birdies build your nest,
weave together straw and feather, doing each your best, doing each your best.
Spring is coming, spring is coming, flowers are waking too,
Daisies, lilies, daffodilies, Now are coming through.
Spring is coming, Spring is coming, All around is fair,
Shimmer, glimmer on the meadow, Joy is everywhere.
Spring 34 song with partitions
Cuckoo, cuckoo, messenger clear,
What are you singing? What are you bringing?
Springtime, Springtime, Springtime is near.
Story The little seed Spring 44
Once upon a time, in Lei Chuan 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...

Poem
Sun, Sun, Sun, here it come
The dark becomes light, why?
Because Sun, Sun, Sun, here it come
Sun, Sun, Sun, here it come
At the end of the night
The light is bright,
Sun, Sun, Sun, here it come,
Here come the Sun

Story
It's spring. The sun shines warmly and Mother Earth passes from place to place and wherever she shakes her mantle green shoots appear, and afterwards many colored blossoms like tiny stars push their way towards the sunlight. Tiny caterpillars emerge from their eggs and begin to eat the leaves of the plants.
Story
Tiny caterpillars emerge from their eggs and begin to eat the leaves of the plants. The plants do not mind. They have so many leaves. The caterpillars grow fat and active.
One caterpillar went to Mother Earth and began to grumble. 'It is not fair,' he said, 'the plants have flowers that can sway in the wind and look at the sun. I have to stay in the shadows of the underside of the leaves. Why can't I be a flower and worship the sun?'
'You have big thoughts, you fat little grub,' said Mother Earth. Then she spoke solemnly and slowly. 'There is a way of becoming different, but it is hard and dangerous. He who came from the sun and brought new life to the earth, he showed the way.'
Story
'Tell me, tell me,' shouted the caterpillar, 'what must I do?'
'You will have to be very brave and be ready to die,' said Mother Earth. 'First you must spin for yourself a white silky garment. You must wind it tightly around your fat little body and then lie quite still and wait. The silky garment will turn quite hard and you will feel as though you are in prison. Your body will dissolve slowly away and you will think that you are going to die. Your body will change into green juice. When there is almost nothing left of you, an angel will come from the sun and press the pattern of your new form against your hard prison and it will go right through into the green juice. Slowly, your new, delicate body will begin to take shape in which you will be able to worship the sun.'
Story
'I will try,' said the caterpillar humbly. And he started spinning the white silky garment. When it was wrapped around him and had turned hard, he lay still, waiting, waiting. It seemed a very long time. He felt himself turning into green juice and he wondered if he would die. But the angel came from the sun with a new pattern and pressed it into him. Gradually the new, much finer and more delicate body formed within his prison. And at last his narrow prison burst open and he emerged into the sunlight. He found he had golden wings and could fly towards the sun. Joyfully he called out, 'I am a flower that can fly! Thank you, Mother Earth, Thank you, Father Sun. Now I can truly worship the sun.' So the caterpillar who had become a butterfly, flew from blossom to blossom and sang songs of joy to the sun.
Spring
I have heard a mother bird
Singing in the rain
Telling all her little ones
Spring has come again.
Spring 34 song with partitions
Cuckoo, cuckoo, messenger clear,
What are you singing? What are you bringing?
Springtime, Springtime, Springtime is near.

The Story of the Wise Men
Long ago four men lived in a village in India. Three of the men read books and studied magic. Everyone thought they were great and wise men. The fourth man, whose name was Hari, knew no magic and did not spend his time studying, so none of the villagers listened to him. But this man had a great deal of sense.
One day, the four men went for a walk outside the village. As they walked, one of the men said to Hari, “Common sense is not useful. It will never make you rich or famous. You should study and learn magic with us.”
Hari said nothing. He just walked along, looking at the trees. Soon the four men came to the bones of a dead animal. One of the men cried, “Now we can show Hari how wonderful it is to study magic. We can use our magic to bring this animal back to life.” The other two magicians eagerly agreed. They decided that one man would put together the skeleton. Then the next man would make the flesh and the skin, and the third man would give the animal life.
"Don’t do this foolish thing,” warned Hari. “Can’t you see that theses are the bones of a lion? If you bring it back to life, it will kill us.” But the men only laughed at Hari. The first man waved his hand and the skeleton stood up.
“Don’t do this foolish thing,” warned Hari. “Can’t you see that theses are the bones of a lion? If you bring it back to life, it will kill us.” But the men only laughed at Hari. The second man said a magic word, and the skeleton became a lion.
“Don’t do this foolish thing,” warned Hari. “Can’t you see that theses are the bones of a lion? If you bring it back to life, it will kill us.” But the men only laughed at Hari. Hari quickly climbed the nearest tree. The third man struck his walking stick on the ground, and the lion came to life. He pounced on the three wise men and gobbled then down in a flash.
And what happened to Hari? He waited until the lion was gone and then went home.

D'Artagnan and the Three Musketeers
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.
“My name is Amanda. I am 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. 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.
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. He appointed him to be the vice chief of the royal musketry. D’Artagnan’s dream came true.
