Gail reads – “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” to her YogaKiddos through zoom, shared screen on Facebook Live on YogaKiddos Facebook Page.
Whew! Now that was a mouthful!
The Veterans Yoga Project people shared with us the procedure for doing a Zoom meeting, that could link up to your Facebook Live.
I typically read children’s books to my YogaKiddos at Wesley UMC Mothers Day Out Program. So how could I still do that, have the kids look at me at the same time, read the book, and do that on Facebook Live?
Hmmm, so I searched teachers sharing homework assignments, and being on camera at the same time.
Turns out, they use their iPhone as a document camera through the app Epoccam by Kinoni. Purchase the one without ads, and then download the drivers from Kinoni.
Then get your tripod, your book, your app linked to the same wifi as your laptop/desktop.
Do some manipulation of your account settings in Zoom, to allow Facebook Livestreaming.
Then Load the iphone app, get your camera angles to where you can read the book.
Start a Zoom meeting, Share your screen, pick Iphone screen, and wal lah!
Do the “more” button on Zoom, to broadcast to Facebook Live! Pick your page, and who is posting and you are set!
I then downloaded the video afterwards, and edited out the minute and a half off the front of the video in Youtube. Posted up on youtube, saved as a pinterest link, and posted and reposted on my facebook page.
Found a delightful little book to use in Kids Yoga at my child’s Scholastic Book fair last month.
“Z is for Moose!”
This laugh-out-loud romp of an abecedary features an impatient moose who just can’t wait for his turn. There is something intrinsically funny about moose (the art has a Bullwinkle feel), and this overenthusiastic one prematurely pops up onstage at D, wearing a proud grin, with hapless Duck having been pushed out of the way. Zebra (sporting a referee’s black-striped shirt) leaps out from the corner, shouting, “Moose? No. Moose does not start with D. You are on the wrong page.” Moose then wanders onto Elephant’s page, Fox and Glove are forced to share a stage, and then Moose’s irrepressibly excited mug plops down from the ceiling, obscuring Hat: “Is it my turn yet?” Basically, he is like an antsy kid anticipating his big star turn at M, only to be heartbroken when Mouse is given that letter’s starring role. Zebra, though frustrated, is not deaf to Moose’s offstage sobbing (look to the title for his resolution to the problem). Ideal for kids who are past struggling to learn the alphabet and who will fully get the humor in Moose’s goofy antics. Grades K-2. –Diane Foote

Here is my review of the book.
Z is for Moose. Great book to use with Kids Yoga! This ABC book to use in reading the story out loud, then acting out the A, B, C animals in the book with yoga poses. It’s great when moose tries to take over the other letters, and has great humor it the story line. I supplemented the book/storytelling with ABC Yoga for Kids Card deck, so that we could further act out animal poses for the letters. For example, the letter U, is Umbrella in the book, but I had the kiddos pick out cards from my yoga deck, and instead of acting out Umbrella, we acted out Unicorn instead. Worked very well for ages 4 – 12.
