In this package you have 26 cards that are organized in alphabetical order with a new yoga pose to match each letter. All sets have cards with and without rhyming directions on them. There are four colors to choose from; turquoise, blue, green, purple. These colors are ‘cool’ colors which activate calming neurons in the brain. At the end of this product I have also included posters with all 26 poses together.
Tips for Use:
Choose a color, or mix them up to make a pattern, then print and cut the cards. I would begin with one-three breaks a day keeping in mind your students’ level of vocabulary and/or balance/strength. I also use the blank cards to add to our word wall once the pose has been taught.
Yoga is an amazing gift that everyone can practice and I am delighted that you are interested in sharing it with your children!
Yoga increases self-awareness, builds self-esteem, strengthens the body, and builds mindfulness in a playful imaginative way. The following yoga postures and stretches included activate pressure points that stimulate the brain to have a balanced and calm mindset. These postures also help build a foundation for writing postures, as well as exercising muscles for fine and gross motor skills. These stretches are also ones that can be practiced anywhere at anytime which is perfect for a busy classroom community. I hope that you and your children find this product to be something that brings peace, joy, and relaxation into your day.
