Giraffes Can't Dance by Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees is a fun fictional story with a wonderful lesson imbedded within it. Gerald, the giraffe, with the help of a little friend, learns to embrace his own talents and strengths and listen to his own music within. The sequence ends with resting period and gives students a chance to think about their own strengths and what makes them special. This story makes for a fun yoga sequence that can be used in the classroom during the ELA block, following story time, as a brain break, as part of a homeschool routine, or at home to get the wiggles out.
Yoga brain breaks may help increase comprehension and recall of story sequencing, especially for kinesthetic learners. They have been found to help improve classroom behavior and classroom management as they help to increase students' focus while calming the body and mind.
