It's difficult to find the time to research and find appropriate resources when you want to implement something new in your classroom! With that in mind, I've sourced the best resources on the Internet for using relaxing activities such as yoga and guided meditation in the classroom- all of which can be used from pre-k to year 6.
Why use this resource?
This is a highly beneficial practice for our young children, equipping them with anger and anxiety management techniques as well as physical education- perfect for those children who don't show interest in sports.
Armed with this resource kit, teachers are equipped with ready-to-go videos and music, scripts and the know-how of introducing and running these activities. Furthermore, the included academic excerpts are perfect for using in day books, experience plans and observations.
What is included:
*Table of 20 free videos, music, yoga instruction and guided meditation resources available free online
*Table of 10 books on yoga for you and the children
*Table of 9 guided mediation scripts free to access
*3 full scripts for guided meditation
*Peer reviewed article extracts from White, L. S. (2009). Yoga for children. Pediatric Nursing, 35(5), 277-83, 295
*Learning outcomes associated with guided meditation in table and plain
This is a collection of resources that I do not claim to own, and have all been appropriately referenced and linked (URL's provided for all).
