Story Seven Little Goats

Once upon a time, there is a mother Goat and seven little kids. They live in the forest. One day, Mother goes to the city. Little kids, please be good and wait for me. And be careful of the Big Bad Wolf. Yes, mommy.
The wolf comes.
Knock knock knock. Who is knocking? Who is knocking? Who is at my door?
"Let me in, children, your mother has returned!"
No, this is not mommy’s voice. This is the Wolf. We don’t open the door.
Let’s go and play.
The wolf comes back with a sweet voice:
Knock knock knock. Who is knocking? Who is knocking? Who is at my door?
"Let me in, children, your mother has returned!" ‘Show us your paw’
No, this is not mommy’s paw. This is the Wolf. We don’t open the door.
The wolf comes back with a sweet voice and a white paw (use sock)
Knock knock knock. Who is knocking? Who is knocking? Who is at my door?
"Let me in, children, your mother has returned!" ‘Show us your paw’
‘This is mommy!, open the door…’
Mommy comes back home. Little kids, where are you? In the wolf’s stomach.
Shtt… Let’s put some stones in the wolf’s stomach…

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

> Song:
Round and round the Earth is turning, turning always onto morning
And from morning round to night.

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.

Pease porridge hot. Pease porridge cold.
Pease porridge in the pot, nine days old.
Some like it hot. Some like it cold.
Some like it in the pot, nine days old.

Which is the way to Fairy Land? To Fairy Land? To Fairy Land?
Which is the way to fairy Land to dance by the light of the moon?

The little bells of Christmas say, Ding, dong, ding , dong
The little bells of Christmas say Din ding dong!

Sun, sun, shining one, have you got a gift for my little son?
Moon, moon, shining one, have you got a gift for my little son?
Stars, stars, twinkling ones, have you got a gift for my little son?
Fir tree, fir tree, strong one, have you got a gift for my little son?
O children, children of the Earth, have you got a gift for my little son?

We wish a merry Christmas. And a happy new year.

Twinkle, twinkle little star, How I wonder what you are,
Up above the world so high, Like a diamond in the sky,
Twinkle, twinkle little star, How I wonder what you are.

We are a circle, within a circle, with no beginning and never ending.

Walk around the circle as the earth around the sun
Walk around the circle, now January is come.
Clap your hands, stamp your feet, welcome the new day.
Clap your hands, stamp your feet, now January is come.
Walk to the middle and back out again.
Walk to the middle and back out again.

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.

Star light, star bright, The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might, Have the wish I wish tonight.

> Story:

Ten little finger dancing just for fun
The queen waved her wand and out went two.

Baa, baaa, black sheep. Have you any wool?
Yes, sir. Yes, sir. Three bags full. One for my master, one for my dame
And one for the little boy who lives down the lane

Where are the rabbits when the North Winds blow? We can not see them in the ice and snow. Deep, deep, down in the mud they lie. Sleeping with tight closed eyes.

Verse
The sun with loving light makes bright for me each day
The soul with spirit power gives strength into my limbs.
In sunlight shining clear, I reverence, O God,
The strength of human kind that you so graciously have planted in my mind.

Game
Round the clock the hours go
Sometimes fast, sometimes slow.
Tell me what the two hands say
They tell you the time of day

…/…

We are shepherds and we sing of lots of jolly things.
We can dance and we can shout. We can wave our caps about.
The starts shine above us. The snow shines below.
And we are so happy in this wondrous glow.

Now that winter has come to stay. All the trees are bare.
Red and golden leaves scatter everywhere.
Busy are all creatures, winter food to hide
Nest to make all cozy, warm and safe inside.

Now that winter has come to stay,
Little birds must fly away to find their food elsewhere.
Little seeds lie hidden in the dark brown earth
Waiting until bidden to rise above the earth

Brown are all the trees and bare
Leaves we know are hidden there
Waiting till the bluebirds sing
Their song of the spring

Winter tells us little bulbs to tuck our heads in so,
Then we will not need to shiver when the cold winds blow

Down the street the North Wind blows
Round the corner there he goes
Hear him whistle, hear him shout
See umbrellas inside out

With my hands, I clap, clap, clap
With my feet, I tap, tap, tap
One step here. One step there.
Round bout as light as air. Lalala
With my finger I tick, tick, tick,
With my head, I nick, nick, nick,
One step here, one step there,
Round about light as air.

Winter is bright, yet each tiny spark brightens the way for Christmas day.

Jolly Old Saint Nicholas lean your ear this way
Don’t you tell a single soul what I’m going to say.

Here's the church,
(fingers interlocked; fingers inside)
And here's the steeple.
(index fingers rise to a point)
Open the door
(keep fingers interlocked but turn palms up)
There are all the people.
(wriggle fingers)

(sitting on floor, descriptive motions)
Put your hands way up,
Put your hands way out,
Put your hands way down,
And give a clap, clap, clap.
Put your right foot out and in,
Put your left foot out and in,
Now put both your feet out,
And kick, kick, kick.

Tommy Thumb,
Tommy Thumb
Where are you?
Here I am, here I am,
How do you do?
(each finger in turn)
Peter Pointer
Toby Tall
Ruby Ring
Baby Finger
Finger Family - here we are.

When I stretch up I feel so tall,
When I bend down I feel so small,
Taller, taller, taller, taller,
Smaller, smaller, smaller, smaller,
Into a rubber ball.

Jolly Old Saint Nicholas…

Take a head, some shoulders, knees and toes
A mouth and eyes that see,
A pair of legs, two feet, one nose,
And what you’ve got is ME.

Now that winter has come to stay
All the trees are bare.
Little birds must fly away.
To find their food elsewhere.
Little seeds lie hidden
In the dark brown earth,
Waiting until bidden
To rise above the earth.

1 2 3 4 5 Once I caught a fish alive
6 7 8 9 10 then I let it go again
Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so
Which finger did it bite?
The little finger on the right

Joy to the world. The lord has come.
Let Earth receive her king. Let every heart prepare him room.
And heaven and nature sing. And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing

In the world is Christmas. Christmas lives in me.
Again the holy child is born. Love’s messenger to be.

He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of this righteousness
And wonders of his love.

Silent night, holy night,
All is calm, al is bright,
Round yon virgin mother and child,
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Morning is come. Night is away.
Rise with the sun. And welcome the day.
Birdies and flowers. Beasties and men.
Rise with the sun. And join in the ring.

Little red bird of the lonely moor, lonely moor, lonely moor
Little red bird of the lonely moor. O where did you sleep last night?

Good bye ducks and eagles! Good bye swallows and geese!
Good bye birds and hummingbirds! Good bye everyone!

To earth I come to greet the light, to greet the sun.
The stones which rest, the plants which grow, the beasts which run.
To greet all who live and walk, who work and will.

How many miles to Babylon? Three score miles and ten.
Can I get there by candle light? Yes, and back again.
