Incorporate a yoga brain break into your ELA block, story time, or anytime your students need to stretch and refocus. Have You Got My Purr? adapted for the book by Judy West, is a heart-warming story in which Kitten searches from farm animal to farm animal in search of what is all ready inside of her. I love this story as it was a favorite of many of my Kindergarten-1st grade students and it translates into a perfect yoga sequence for kids. Reenact the story with 2 pages of yoga poses while teaching students to calm their bodies and brains while learning the lesson that sometimes you only have to look inside yourself to find what you are looking for.
The Boardmaker pictures can be easily displayed on an interactive white board or document camera and are appropriate and accessible for students of varying abilities and multiple grade levels.
