Yoga Storytime – Summer Week #4

14 Jul

61KDQZdditL._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_ I didn’t see as many kids in my storytime yesterday as I normally do.  I’m wondering if it’s a popular week for vacation.  Otherwise, the kids seemed to enjoy the books this week – we talked a lot about different types of animals and I was able to introduce parents/caregivers to offering non-fiction to little ones in an accessible way.  The kids really enjoyed acting out the movements it Hop, Hop, Jump! (although on the page where the illustration shows hopping, the picture is of a child jumping..).  And as usual, “Zoom, Zoom, Zoom” was a lot of fun.  Overall, a smaller crowd but a great storytime!

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