{Review & Giveaway} Good Night Yoga: a pose-by-pose bedtime story by Mariam Gates

Good Night Yogs book giveaway

.

Check out this cool new #KidsYoga book: “Good Night Yoga: A Pose-by-Pose Bedtime Story” by Mariam Gates and Sara Jane Hinder! What I love about this book:

  • Short rhyming text in a large easy to read font on each page. Additional smaller text provides kid-friendly instructions for the yoga pose and breathing on each 2-page spread.
  • Gorgeous vivid illustrations that are a feast for the eyes. Even the end sheets are illustrated… such a nice touch!
  • Well designed book with sturdy binding & luxurious thick paper pages that will stand up well to repeated use.
  • The book presents the 11 poses in a nice yoga flow and includes a 2-page spread of the entire yoga flow at the end of the book.
  • Includes a “Cloud Journey” guided relaxation visualization at the end of the book.
  • Many of the patients that I see a Speech-Language Pathologist have Autism, ADHD, anxiety & other diagnoses that interfere with restful sleep. Good Night Yoga will definitely be added to my list of recommended books for families looking for relaxation materials for their child.

.

Product Details: 

Kids love yoga—and it’s great for them, so much so that the President’s Council has added the practice to the fitness activities in the annual President’s Challenge. For parents and caregivers looking for a fun and effective new routine for bedtime, innovative educator Mariam Gates presents Good Night Yoga, a playful yet wholly practical book for preparing for sleep.

This beautifully illustrated, full-color book tells the story of the natural world as it closes down for the night, while teaching children a simple flow of yoga postures inspired by their favorite characters from nature. Moving from “Sun Breath” to “Cloud Gathering” to “Ladybug & Butterfly” and more, readers learn techniques for self soothing, relaxing the body and mind, focusing attention, and other skills that will support restful sleep and improve overall confidence and well-being.

This bedtime story is so much more than a story. It’s a practice for kids and parents to end the day in a calming, mindful way. Turn the page and stretch like a tree, settle softly like a ladybug, float like a cloud, and you’ll be dreaming soon.

{What Were They Thinking?!} ASHA’s misguided assault on kids & technology for Better Hearing & Speech Month 2015

 What Were They Thinking blog post

I received yet another e-mail from The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association in their Better Hearing & Speech Month attack on technology. I’ve been a SLP for over 25 years and I have never been as disappointed in ASHA as I am right now.

I totally get that too much technology for young kids is not a good idea but I worry that this assault on it by ASHA during BHSM is going to cause parents & SLPs to want to banish all use of iPads or other similar technology.

What about the good side of technology?

The era of iPads, tablets & smartphones has caused AAC to become affordable & therefore accessible to those who need it. Those who use augmentative communication need unrestricted access to it in all settings without judgement or misconceptions from others.

This technology has also given SLPs powerful new tools in their therapy toolbox to help kids make progress who hadn’t responded to traditional materials, toys or techniques. I have had numerous patients with Autism Spectrum Disorder or similar diagnoses who just stimmed or had meltdowns with traditional speechie materials, toys & techniques but made jaw-dropping progress when I incorporated my iPad with high-quality apps as a tool and then gradually expanded from there into off iPad activities. Wish I had been part of a research study. I would not have believed it if I hadn’t witnessed it with my own eyes. Truly life-changing for those kids.

So far none of ASHA’s media blitz on this has contained info about use of technology for these purposes. In my opinion ASHA is running the risk of causing harm and further strengthening the myths that we all battle against in trying to get appropriate AAC in place for our kids and may discourage SLPs from using new technology in therapy sessions.

.

Great post by Barbara at GeekSLP / Smarty Ears: “Children: Too much technology is not the same as just enough”: http://www.geekslp.com/2015/05/children-too-much-technology-is-not-the-same-as-just-enough/

{OMazing Kids Book Review} Jo MacDonald Hiked in the Woods

 image

.

I love books that put a new twist on a familiar song and have a great repeated line! I have all three books in this series. The third one “Jo MacDonald Hiked in the Woods” has the following animals in it: woodpecker, squirrel, turkey, chipmunk, snake, turtle, skunk, moth & owl. Additional opportunities for kids yoga include tree, forest (group of trees), cross crawl hike, sandwich (picnic in woods), rock & relaxing stars (perfect for leading into a guided relaxation at the end). Teachers will love the facts about forest animals, plants & trees and activities to teach kids to be a naturalist at the end of the book.

Dawn Publications has several free printables for the book: http://www.dawnpub.com/downloadable_activities_book/

I bought my copy on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Macdonald-Hiked-Woods-Mary-Quattlebaum/dp/1584693355

{Giveaway} Calming Young Minds CD

Calming Young Minds CD giveaway

.

 

Product Details: A unique compilation of relaxation, meditation, guided imagery, blissful music, creativity, and yoga for children.

Whether you are a parent, teacher, day care provider, child life specialist, yoga instructor, or psychotherapist, we have made it is easy to use these CDs. Listeners are guided step by step through each section, although it is recommended that you listen to these CDs in entirety before using with the children so you can familiarize yourself with the content, directives and the exercises. Some tracks are active, some are relaxing, some yoga exercises conclude with an artistic directive. The background music and vocals compliment the yoga sets, but you might have some additional background music available while the children are being creative. It is important that you have art supplies available. Markers and large paper (18 X 24) are sufficient but feel free to add oil pastels, scented markers or crayons. You might also have paper towels handy for clean up. Make sure there is sufficient space for the children to move around…… you might even have cushions or pillows for the children to sit on. And lastly, enjoy the playful nature of the CDs. Although it is geared for children and teens, adults may enjoy it just as much! ENJOY!

Here’s what I love about the CD set:

  • relaxing background sounds & music.
  • lovely narration of kids yoga adventures. The narration is pretty detailed so these would be best used with kids elementary school age and up.
  • great combination of kids yoga, relaxation, imagination, guided imagery, creativity & art.
  • includes great positive messages of courage & mindfulness.
