One of the most frequent requests on OMazing Kids has been for “robot-themed” kids yoga lesson plan ideas. I have searched for “robot theme kids yoga ideas” several times. There is alot more for a “space theme” than for “robots” but here’s what I found:
* Robots Slither by Ryan Ann Hunter [picture book with the following opportunities for yoga: cobra, bug, chair, bed, fish, whale, boat, rocket, star, tree, cat, skateboarder (warrior 2), breath of fire, dinosaur stomps, cross-crawl hike, up dog, down dog]
* Lots of Bots! by David A. Carter [pop-up picture book with the following opportunities for yoga: helicopter, cat, cow, mountain, vacuum cleaner breath, wiggle bot yoga freeze dance, washing machine, toothbrush, woodchopper, hip-hop robot dance, boat, treasure chest, acro-bots (any acro-yoga partner activities that would be safe for those kids ages & abilities)]
* One of the Move With Me DVD’s has a robot-themed class: Robot Makes a New Friend on the Moon (http://move-with-me.com/store/scooter-me-active-play-social-skills-program-9-yoga-movement-story-video-classes/scooter-me-mind-series-kids-yoga-dvds-for-focus-self-awareness-self-control-set-of-3).
