Written by a professional children's yoga teacher, this unit is the perfect kids yoga and creative movement companion to the book "Green Eggs and Ham" by Dr. Seuss.
(*Please note, you must have a copy of the book in order to facilitate the lesson plan). Great movement activity for Read Across America/Dr. Seuss' Birthday, or anytime of the year!
Students will love acting out poses as the story is read aloud to them, including:
(and many other fun creative movements!)
Each lesson plan is KID TESTED, and includes step-by-step instructions for the poses/exercises, tons of photographs and examples of the lesson plan in action, and a list of additional resources (including songs, and printables to supplement the lesson plan).
All lessons include tips on working with various ages and abilities (this specific plan is tailored to Preschoolers-3rd Grade), giving options of difficulty for poses and allowing instructors to modify for their specific students.
The lesson plans do not promote or include any spiritual/religious elements.
