Back in October, I submitted my lesson plan for kids yoga to OMazing Kids website, and voting on facebook occurred and my friends on facebook and YOU came through and my lesson plan won! Thank you!
Kids Yoga Lesson Plan Contest on OMazing Kids
Go over to the facebook site to see the set of lesson plans submitted, print and put into your folders for future reference to use in teaching kiddos yoga. Great stuff!
As part of my winning the contest Angela would help me with figuring out another lesson plan for me to use with the kiddos. The “Prize”: The winning lesson plan will be announced on the OMazing Kids blog with the entire lesson plan text & picture(s), author’s name, website, Facebook page & other social media page links included. It will be announced & shared on all the OMazing Kids social media sites and your Facebook page will be “tagged” and folks will be encouraged to go “like” your page (think of it as a social media blitz to help promote your website & social media sites). The winner will also have the opportunity to receive a custom made visual support and story props made by me to go with their lesson plan and consultation regarding inclusion of kids with special needs. The details for that will be handled via e-mail correspondence with me.
So I selected the book Animalia by Graeme Base. My friend Tammy Miller, gave Grace this book as a gift, and I quickly saw that this book had great potential to be used in a YogaKiddos class. I gave Angela of OMazing Kids Yoga a crack at it to see what she could come up with. Here are her list of suggested yoga poses, based on the contents of the book.
Then I needed to show her some specific pages to get more ideas for some of these pages in the book.
And Angela’s suggestion for multiple items on a page. “When there are multiple things on a page I typically just do poses or breathing for the ones that match up the best….. especially for a book that has as much as this in it.”
This book will get several YogaKiddos classes out of it since it has so much great graphics on the page!
