2010 March 1 ~ 7

> Morning verse:

Awake, awake. The sun is shining bright.

He drives away the long dark night

The moon and the stars have gone to rest

And Earth in softest green is dressed.

Now we will open our heart

Of this great world we are all part.

And if we work or sleep or play

Be with us, golden sun today.

> Chant

Two little hands go clap, clap, clap

Two little feet go tap, tap, tap

One little body turns round and round

And I stand up, straight on the ground.

One step to the left, one step to the right,

One step to the front and one step to the back.

I stretch my arms up high,

And I stand up, straight on the ground!

> Song:

When we tell a story, we sit altogether

Today’s story will begin soon.

> Story:

Caterpillar, crawling so slow

Caterpillar let me help you go

Carrying my caterpillar showing all my friends.

Caterpillar crawled somewhere

I don’t know where he goes.

Caterpillar crawling down my nose

Caterpillar crawling up the trees

Caterpillar eating all the leaves

Caterpillar getting big and round

Caterpillar finds a branch to spin all around

In his cocoon seeping for some time

Dreams... until he grows some wings

And becomes a butterfly.

> Song

Butterfly, flutter by in the garden

How happy am I that you’re passing by.

Please come in. I have room for you.

> Game: Hide and Seek

Eeny meeny miny moe, catch a tiger by the toe. If he hollers, let him go.

My mother told me to choose the very best one, and this is you.

A student is chosen, goes outside to hide. And hunters go find him/her.

To the second boy, he shows a white cocoon.

He shows a yellow butterfly to the third boy.

A red butterfly, he shows to the fourth boy.

In the evening, the queen asks:

So, my dear boys, what is a butterfly?

It’s green, says the first boy.

No. It’s white, says the second boy.

The third boy says it’s yellow.

Story ‘The three little butterflies’
 Once upon a time, there were three little butterfly brothers, one white, one red, and one yellow. They played in the sunshine. They dance among the flowers in the garden. They were so happy. One day, there comes a heavy rain and the butterflies are wet. They fly away home. When they get there, they find the door is locked and the key is gone. So they have to stay in the rain and they are wet, very wet.
  By and by, they fly to the red tulip. They say. Beautiful tulip, will you open your flower-cup and let us in till the storm is over? The tulip answers: The red butterfly may enter, because he is like me, but the white and yellow may not come in. The red butterfly says: If my white and yellow brothers can not come in, then I will stay outside in the rain with them. So the three butterflies fly away.
  By and by, they fly to the yellow daffodil. They say. Beautiful daffodil, will you open your flower-cup and let us in till the storm is over? The daffodil answers: The yellow butterfly may enter, because he is like me, but the white and red may not come in. The yellow butterfly says: If my white and red brothers can not come in, then I will stay outside in the rain with them. So the three butterflies fly away.
  By and by, they fly to the white lily. They say. Beautiful lily, will you open your flower-cup and let us in till the storm is over? The lily answers: The white butterfly may enter, because he is like me, but the white and red may not come in. The white butterfly says: If my yellow and red brothers can not come in, then I will stay outside in the rain with them. So the three butterflies fly away.
  But the sun, who is behind a cloud, can hear it, and he knows the butterflies are very good brothers. So he pushes his face through the clouds, chases the rain away and shines in the garden. He dries the wings of the three butterflies, and warms their bodies. They stop to cry, and dance among the flowers. They fly away home and find mommy at the door.

Morning Verse  for Semester 2

 

The sun is in my heart. He warms me with his power,
And wakens life and love In bird and beast and flower.
With joy I greet the morning sun
Who shines with love on every one
Who shines in the sky, on the land and sea,
And who fills me with light When he shines on me.
Good morning (afternoon) to you and Good morning (afternoon) to me.

Story: Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter
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 nor 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.

They played in the sunshine. They dance among the flowers in the garden. They were so happy.
 One day, there comes a heavy rain and the butterflies are wet. They fly away home.
When they get there, they find the door is locked and the key is gone.
So they have to stay in the rain and they are wet, very wet.
  By and by, they fly to the red tulip. They say.
Beautiful tulip, will you open your flower-cup and let us in till the storm is over?
The tulip answers:
The red butterfly may enter, because he is like me, but the white and yellow may not come in.
The red butterfly says:
If my white and yellow brothers can not come in, then I will stay outside in the rain with them.
So the three butterflies fly away.
  By and by, they fly to the yellow daffodil. They say.
Beautiful daffodil, will you open your flower-cup and let us in till the storm is over?
The daffodil answers:
The yellow butterfly may enter, because he is like me, but the white and red may not come in.
The yellow butterfly says:
If my white and red brothers can not come in, then I will stay outside in the rain with them.
So the three butterflies fly away.
  By and by, they fly to the white lily. They say.
Beautiful lily, will you open your flower-cup and let us in till the storm is over?
The lily answers:
The white butterfly may enter, because he is like me, but the white and red may not come in.
The white butterfly says:
If my yellow and red brothers can not come in, then I will stay outside in the rain with them.
So the three butterflies fly away.
  But the sun, who is behind a cloud, can hear it, and he knows the butterflies are very good brothers.
So he pushes his face through the clouds, chases the rain away and shines in the garden.
He dries the wings of the three butterflies, and warms their bodies.
They stop to cry, and dance among the flowers. They fly away home and find mommy at the door.

Story: The Little Seed
In the School, in the playground, a little seed is lying in the earth. She is waiting. One day, an ant passes by through the soil. This ant chatters and chatters. ‘What did you say?’ asks the little seed. The ant replies: 'What? Spring is coming, Spring is coming! Quick'
'Spring,' thinks the little seed. 'Can Spring really be coming?'
Just then her old friend the worm comes slowly by. 'Worm, is it true what the ant has told me? Spring is coming?' The worm thinks and replies. 'Yes, I think it must be true, because, yesterday, I am sure that the soil up above felt warmer than usual.' And he runs away.
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. She grows and grows until… oh dear, what is this? A big rock is in her way. The rock is as hard as iron and fixed firmly in the earth.
But as she is wondering what she should do, she feels a crack at the center of the stone. She slips the tip of her shoot and continues to grow. The shoot grows stronger and stronger. All of a sudden, there is a loud CRACK! The darkness falls away and the world is filled with light and warmth.
The plant has sprouted.
Story The Whitsun Daisy Flower
@Story
Once there lived a little white flower in the meadow.
Her name is ‘Daisy’. She wants to fly. She wants to run.
But she can not. Her roots grow into earth. They hold her there.
One day she hears singing:
@Song
I see skies of blue..... clouds of white
Bright blessed days....dark sacred nights
And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world.
@Story
The daisy raises her head and sees a bird / a white dove sitting on a branch above.
“Bird, bird!,” says the little daisy, ”How beautiful you are.
I am trapped here on the earth.
I have no legs. I have no legs to run with.
I have no wings. I have no wings to run with.
I have no friends. I have no friends to play with.
I have nothing to do in the world.”
“No. You are a flower. says the dove,
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.
You can share with the bees and butterflies. Wait for me.
I will fetch it for you. I will bring it to you.” The white dove flies into the sky.
@Story
Soon the dove returns.
He is carrying in his beak a tiny flame, a golden flame from Father Sun himself. The dove gently lays the tiny flame. Suddenly, the flower opens, shining, sparkling. There appears a heart of brightest gold among her petals. "Bees, bees! Butterflies, butterflies, Come to me! Come to me!".
@Game
Here is the beehive. Where are the bees ?
Hidden away where nobody sees.
Watch out and you will see them coming out... 1..2..3..4..5..
@Poem
At Whitsun, the flowers unfold, yellow, white and gold.
The wind blows ever round and round,
Sending us the fire, holy flame of fire.
@Song
Spirits of fire, come to us! We will kindle a fire!
We will kindle a fire, dance the magic circle round.
