Grade 2 - Winter Season
English Curriculum Grade 2 Season 2 Winter


English Curriculum Grade 2 Season 2 Winter Nature

Pentatonic song:
Bumble bee and butterfly, spider and the beetle,
Come around and dance with us in winds before the winter.

Story + Game
Once upon a time, a mighty tiger lived in the jungle. Everyday, he would go hunting for treasures. He slowly gathered all the treasures from the villages. But the tiger grew old and began to go blind. When the children heard about this, they tried to fetch the treasures back, but the tiger could hear very well.
Game: One student, chosen to be the tiger is blindfolded and sitting in the middle of the circle. Other students come silently and try to get some beanbags.

Poem
No shade, no shine, No butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, No leaves, no birds, November.

The stork
I lift my leg. I stretch my leg. I plant it firm and light.
I lift again, and stretch again. My pace exactly right.
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.

English Curriculum Grade 2 Season 2 Winter Language

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


English Curriculum Grade 2 Season 2 Winter Math

Poem + Slow Dance
Twelve children together are we Merry and bright as you can,
Twelve children hand in hand In one circle here we stand.
Let's move and you will see, 12 is 1 lot of 12.
Let's move and you will see, 12 is 2 lots of 6.
Let's move and you will see, 12 is 3 lots of 4.
Let's move and you will see, 12 is 4 lots of 3.
Let's move and you will see, 12 is 6 lots of 2.
Let's move and you will see, 12 is 12 lots of 1.
12 = 1 x 12, 12 = 2 x 6, 12 = 3 x 4,... 12 / 1 = 12, 12 / 2 = 6, 12 / 3 = 4, ...

Chant + Dance
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, all good children go to heaven.
Some go up and some go down, And some go all around the town.
