I lift my leg. I stretch my leg. I plant it firm and light.

With care I go, so grand and slow. I move just like a stork.
My eye is bright, my head upright, and pride is in my walk.

Story Saint Nicholas
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.

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.

Song: Fire, fire, burning bright, keep us warm in this cold night…

Song: Walk around the circle as the Earth around the Sun.
Walk around the circle, now January’s come.
Clap your hands, stamp your feet, Welcome the New Year.
Clap your hands, stamp your feet, now January’s here.

Poem + Activity
I am a circle. I am round. I am everywhere, in the eye and in the sky,
On the floor and on the floor, on Jimmy and on Emily, …
Students, bring me something round…
Example: ball, marble, dust bin, paintbrush, basket, …

Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely days
Where can I find someone to be my friend?
I see the sunrise, sunset every day
Why am I here alone standing every day?

Chant
Jump high, jump low, Touch the sky and the earth below
Jump out wide, jump in narrow. Hands to the ground I'm a wheelbarrow.

Song:
See the dragons dance and prance, hop / shake / turn around / go to sleep,
On Chinese New Year's Day

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,"
The Fox says. "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.

@ Poem
Little brown seed, round and round,
Here I put you in the ground.
You can sleep a week or two,
Then - I'll tell you what to do:
You must grow some downward roots,
Then some tiny upward shoots.
From these green shoots' folded sheaves
Soon must come some healthy leaves.
When the leaves have time to grow,
Next a bunch of buds must show.
Last of all, the birds must spread
Instead blossoms white or red.
There, seed! I've done my best.
Please to grow and do the rest.

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!

The old lady says: Let’s sell it out tomorrow and we will get some money. The next day, the old man sells out the egg and buys some more food. The old man and the old lady are happy every day.
But the goose gives only one golden egg every day.
One day, the old lady says: The goose gives us only one egg every day. There must be many golden eggs inside her body. If we open her body, we can get some more golden eggs. So we can buy a new house, a new horse, a new barn and maybe a new field.

Story of the Great Oak and the Reed
The great oak tree thinks he is the strongest Because he’s been there the longest
The sleeker reed, she knows much better For she can bend in stormy weather.
The wind it blew. The rain came lashing. And down the great oak tree came crashing.
The slender reed swayed in the weather And at the dawn, was stronger as ever.

Billy the bee, so happy is he. Among all the flowers, he spends many hours.

Once I saw a little bird come hop, hop, hop And I said: Will you stop? Stop? Stop?
I went to the window saying How do you do But he shook his little tail and he flew.

I like the flowers, I like the daffodils, I like the mountains, I like the rolling hills,
I like the fires, when the lights are low. Shoo bi doo, shoo bi doo, shoo bi doo wow !

The sun is in my heart, He warms me with his power
And wakens life and love In bird and beast and flower.

Song:
O Dandelion, yellow as gold, What do you do all day?
I just wait here in the tall, green grass Till the children come to play.
O Dandelion, yellow as gold, What do you do all night?
I wait and wait till the cool dews fall And my hair grows long and white.

Lots of animals come from eggs, Some with fins and some with legs,
Some that chatter and some that cheep, Some that fly and some that creep,
Some that slither and some that run, Some with feathers and some with none,
Animal eggs can be quite small, Or just as big as a tennis ball.
The animals here, they are quite a few Hatch from eggs and lay them too.

From thee comes light and strength, to thee rise love and thanks.
