Yoga Storytime – Week #2

30 Jun

Do-Princesses-Really-Kiss-Frogs-Hardcover-L9780873588805The kids really loved our books this week!  We had such a fun time reading and interacting.  There has been such a positive response, that we actually opened a second class, so now I have two yoga classes back-to-back which can be a little hectic, but our patrons were very happy to have the option to come to storytime.

Warm-up: Rock n Roll, Zip up Spine, Deep Breaths, Cat/Cow, Dog

ASL Sign: Yoga (fingerspell each letter)

 Early Literacy Tip: Take a nature walk of your own.  Ask your children what they see.
