PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Created by a professional children's yoga teacher, this lesson plan is the perfect yoga/creative movement companion to the story "The Diggers"by Margaret Wise Brown.

Students can retell the tale of animals and machines digging their way to discovery through exciting yoga poses for each character in the book (including rabbits, dogs, moles, worms, diggers, bumpy construction trucks, trains, and more!). Works great with a transportation/construction unit, or learning about animals who make their homes underneath the ground.

The packet includes step-by-step instructions for each pose, modified to be age appropriate, along with large photographs of the poses in action, and a full set of printable pose cards to use with the story, or on their own as fun brain breaks!

Each lesson is kid tested, includes lots of fun creative movements and imaginative play, along with an optional relaxation/mindfulness section to help teach self-regulation and calming techniques.

Additionally, the packet is filled with supplemental activity ideas, links to printables and coloring sheets, song recommendations and more.

Your students will love these easy to follow poses, (no yoga experience needed) as you recreate this lovable story. There are several versions of the poses based on difficulty level, so teachers/parents can easily adapt to the age/ability of students. All poses are kid-friendly and perfect for Preschool-2nd grade.

The lesson plans do not promote or include any spiritual/religious elements. Work great for classroom, library, or at-home use.

LENGTH: 30-45 min (or just use specific sections for a 10 minute brain break!)
