Yoga Storytime – Summer Week #6

28 Jul

mooseMy last yoga storytime of the summer went very well!  We had a small group in both classes, but the kids had so much fun with the “search and find” theme!  They really seemed to like Looking for Moose and couldn’t wait to find chameleon in Hide and Seek.  Our last book, Look Book by Tana Hoban had some very difficult pictures to decipher, but the kids did a great job figuring out the clues I gave them.  Overall, this has been a great storytime this summer and I plan on taking the fall to revamp some of my yoga storytime aspects to make it a little better and more fun!

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

ASL Sign: Yoga (fingerspell each letter)

Early Literacy Tip: Fingerplays and rhymes help children learn the smaller parts of words, making learning to read easier!
