Morning Circle Gathering Verse (Mother Holle)

Gentle fairies, wise elf men 
Come join us please do 
We bring golden light 

From our gardens to you

Our Angels they guide us
By day and by night

In the sun, and the moon, and the stars shining bright.

Good day to the sun up in the sky

Good day to the birds as they fly on by

Good day to the tree so straight and strong

Good day to the nest where the birds do rest

Good day to one and all

Morning Circle

In Steiner Education 'Morning Circle' is where we come together in a movement journey, which includes songs and rhymes, often but not always seasonal in nature. The songs and verses are tied together through a common theme and lead the children through an imaginative journey where they can practice gross and fine motor skills, balance, dexterity and language. They develop their sense of movement, sense of balance and life sense and sense of touch, which are all vital to healthy child development.  

This term we have chosen a familiar tune, we hope most families will have heard before, making it easier to sing along and do appropriate actions without needing to refer to the printed circle version, which you will find in your pack. Towards Spring we will add some suggestions for new theme ideas with some suggestions and your family can make your own up as you go along also.
