Two little boats sail on the sea. All is calm as calm can be.
Gently the wind begins to blow. Two little boats rock to and fro.
Loudly the wind begins to shout. Two little boats are tossed about.
Gone is the wind, the storm, the rain. Two little boats sail on again.

Good morning when it's morning. Good night when it is night.

And when it's time to go away. Good bye, good bye, good bye.

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

Story Peter Rabbit
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.

Song:
Good morning, dear Earth. Good morning, dear Sun,
Good morning, dear Stones and Flowers everyone.
Good morning, dear Beasts and Birds in the trees.
Good morning to you and good morning to me.

Song:
In the summer garden, where we singing go,
Light is flowing, glowing, flowing, while the roses grow.

Story
The wind and the sun argued about which of them was the stronger.
The wind said, 'I am so powerful that I can blow all the clouds out of the sky.'
The sun said, 'I am more powerful because I can heat up the sea below and this will produce many more clouds.'
For a long time, the sun and the wind went on arguing. Just then, they saw a boy walking along the road below, the wind suddenly had an idea. He said, 'Let's see who can make that boy take off his coat.' The sun agreed.
The wind started first. He blew as hard as he could. He blew from behind and he blew from in front of the boy. The harder he blew, the more tightly the boy held on to his coat to keep himself warm. After a while, the wind gave up.
Now it was the sun's turn. She came out from behind the clouds and shone on the boy. The boy felt warm. It began to get hotter and hotter. Soon the boy could not stand the heat any longer. He took his coat off. The sun had won.

Song
Can you, can you see the wind passing by?
Can you, can you see the wind passing by?
The leaves dance, the clouds fly,
The windows rattle and the trees cry.
But can you, can you see the wind passing by?

Song
Who loves the wind on a stormy night,
when the curtains are drawn and the fires are bright?
Down the chimney, he comes inside
And such an uproar he makes in the house...
Woooooo Woooooo, says the wind.

Poem
I am the Sun And I bear with my might The Earth by day, the Earth by night.
I hold her fast, and my gifts I bestow To everything on her, so that it may grow:
Man and stone, flower and bee All receive their light from me.
Open your heart, dear child, to me, That we together one light may be.

One day she hears singing: There was a little rose.
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.
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!".

Song:
My paddle is keen and bright flashing with silver
Follow the wild goose flight. Dip dip and swing.
Dip, dip and swing her back flashing with silver.
Follow the wild goose flight. Dip dip and swing.

Poem:
The silver rain, the shining sun, the fields where scarlet poppies run,
And all the ripples of the wheat are in the bread that we do eat.
So when we sit for every meal, and say our grace, we always feel
That we are eating rain and sun, and fields where scarlet poppies run.

The Leaves are Falling Down (to the tune of "The Farmer in the Dell")
The leaves are falling down The leaves are falling down
School is here and fall is near The leaves are falling down.
The leaves are falling down The leaves are falling down
Some are red and some are brown The leaves are falling down.
The leaves are falling down The leaves are falling down
'tickle your nose and touch your toes The leaves are falling down.

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
In the spring time garden, rosy morning glow
Sunshine calling, falling, calling. Seedlings wake and grow.

Poem
Lilies are white. Rosemary’s green. When you are king, I will be queen.
Roses are red. Lavender’s blue. If you have me, I will have you.

Story: The Fox and the Crow - Aesop's fable
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.

Once upon a time, there is a shepherd boy watching his sheep in the mountains.
He is bored. To amuse himself, he shouts: -Wolf! Help me!
The villagers came running up the hill but find no wolf.
The boy says: -Me!? No! Not me. And he is laughing at the villagers.
The villagers say: -Little boy, do not say ‘Wolf’ if there is no ‘Wolf’.
Later, he is bored again. To amuse himself, he shouts: -Wolf! Help me!
The villagers came running up the hill but find no wolf.
The boy says: -Me!? No! Not me. And he is laughing at the villagers.

We are five very little creatures, All of different voices and features.
One of us in glass is set. One of us you will find in jet. The other you may see in tin.
The fourth a box within. It can never fly from you. (a, e, I, o, u)

The sun says “I glow,” The wind says “I blow,” The stream says “I flow,”
The plant says “I grow,” And man says “I know.”

LEFT AND RIGHT
Left and Right were going to fight,
They crossed their swords in the middle of the night.
Left and Right were equally strong.
Left and Right were equally wrong!
Left and Right grew tired of the fight,
So they all shook hands and said Good-night.

THE RAINBOW
Red, and orange, and yellow, and green:
The rainbow’s seven colors have a bright shiny sheen.
Light blue, indigo, and violet all told.
At the end of the rainbow is a pot of gold.

As high as a house

As small as a mouse
(crouch)
As wide as a barn
(feet apart, arms sideways)
As thin as a pin
(stand erect).

Minds and hearts he gave to us To help each other the whole day through.

Story
Once upon a time, 25 children went fishing. Some went into the water. Some stayed on dry land. When they want to go home, one said:
Let me see, let me count if everybody is here. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… 24! Oh no, one is missing!
Let me see, let me count, said another one. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… 24! Oh no, one is missing!
A postman came passing by. Can I help you? Yes, of course. One of us is missing.
If you all give me something, then I can help you.
The first one gave him an eraser, the second one…
See, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, … 22! Here you are. Thank you, Mr. Postman. Thank you so much.

@ 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!

Poem
In soft morning light, the stars fade away.
The birds soon awake. This is a new day.
Journey dreams of night, they end with the day.
Angels guide us home, for work and for play.
Awake. Awake. Shine like the sun. Give light and love to everyone.
