When we talk about the habit, “seek first to understand, then to be understood,” we focus, first, on listening to others. Next, we work to understand their viewpoints, even if they differ from our own. This second part can take courage, on both sides. To stand by your feelings/opinions, even if you fear they won’t be the same as others’, and to accept views that are not your own, can be challenging. Push your fear aside and be courageous. Explore the Wonderful Wizard of Oz and the 5th habit (seek first to understand), through Yoga poses, games, and meditation. This product includes a detailed lesson plan for a 45-min Yoga class, which can be taught by anybody (you don't have to be a Yoga teacher). The components are easily broken down to be taught over the course of 5 days, making it convenient to fit into your classroom schedule. Also included is a list of poses aligned with the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, color cards for a rainbow greeting, and a newsletter.
