Details about the two books I am donating to the mega-giveaway. Since I don’t have any products or services to raffle off, I decided to donate two of my favorite books to use in kids yoga classes. I have hundreds of kids pictures books but the decision was easy. I chose these two books because they beautifully weave affirmations into the story.

Five Snowy Faves – kids picture book gems

snowy book faves

There are certain kids picture books that stand out as “gems”. Those “extra-special” books that make your heart smile every time you read them. The way the text flows & rhymes as you read it aloud. The detail and beauty of the illustrations that are a feast for the eyes. The special life lessons and values that they convey. A fun repeated line that provides an opportunity for kids to participate in telling the story. Even the size and type of font, the feel of the paper and the cover add to the “gem” qualities of a great kids picture book.

These five books are recent additions to my vast collection of picture books and are “gems”:

a-flower-in-the-snow

  • A Flower in the Snow by Tracey Corderoy, illustrated by Sophie Allsopp. Luna and her polar bear friend (Bear) discover a beautiful gold flower growing in the snow. But when the flower fades, Bear goes on a search around the world for another to bring to Luna. It’s only when he returns home that the true strength of their friendship is revealed.This book has wonderful illustrations, large easy-to-read text, lots of descriptive language, opportunities for imagination as you follow Bear’s search for the flower, and conveys the value of true friendship. An added bonus is that there are lots of opportunities for kids yoga poses.

making-a-friend

  • Making a Friend by Alison McGhee, illustrated by Marc Rosenthal. Short easy-to-read sentences on each page, great opportunities for vocabulary, sequencing, part-to-whole & pronouns, several wordless pages allow for creativity and storytelling, fun hidden details as you search for the snowman’s face in several of the pages, and the story conveys two great messages: “What you love will always be with you” and the cycle of connection in nature (snow, water, ocean, rain, fog, frost).

NoTwoAlike

  • No Two Alike by Keith Baker. A story that conveys the beauty of being unique. Vivid illustrations, bold short easy-to-read text on each page, text from one page rhymes with the next, and lots of animals and nature depicted will provide opportunities to use this in a kids yoga class.

overunder

  • Over and Under the Snow by Kate Messner, illustrated by Christopher Silas Neal. The dimensions of the book, sturdy feel and texture of the paper and illustrations are all unique. Lots of opportunity for prepositions, verbs & other descriptive vocabulary. The accuracy of the details and info about the animals depicted in the book would lend itself well to use in a classroom discussion. See this pic for yoga opportunities in this book: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=472679099449767&set=pb.174264525957894.-2207520000.1355009141&type=3&theater. (Also shared in the “Winter & Christmas” blog post linked below)

robert frost

  • Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost, illustrated by Susan Jeffers. A beautiful rendition of the famous poem brought to life by the detailed illustrations. Lots of wonderful animals to look for on each page and opportunities for vocabulary and inferences. A splendid way to introduce young children to poetry.

(A beautiful short video rendition of the poem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lEtMLqP7tpA)

Yoga-Recess in Schools – kids yoga campaign

YogaRecessDay2012a_300_300

Yoga-Recess national campaign aims to bring yoga into classrooms

Los Angeles October 7, 2012  —  Yoga-Recess in Schools is a national campaign coordinated by the Yoga Health Foundation to bring yoga-based health education into classrooms. By providing free online resources like instructional videos and lesson plans that will make it easy and fun for school teachers to integrate yoga into their teaching schedule. This allows children to benefit from balancing their body and mind through breathing and stretching exercises. The national campaign will peak with Yoga-Recess Day, Friday January 25, 2013 with hundreds of participating school teachers and organizations.

“Since we started Yoga-Recess 2 years ago over 10,000 school teachers expressed interest in bringing yoga into their classroom. With the new Yoga-Recess in School campaign we encourage school teachers to integrate breathing, stretching and other short yoga exercises into their daily class schedule.” says Johannes R. Fisslinger, president of the Yoga Health Foundation.

Considering budget cuts in schools across the country and the elimination or reduction of physical education, school officials are looking to find cost-effective ways to bring PE back into their schools. Physical exercise alone does not seem to be enough anymore. Children of all grades are more stressed then ever and yoga seems to be the perfect form of exercise to balance the body and mind.

According to the University of Indiana’s Sound Medicine, children who practice yoga, often experience healthier sleep patterns which allow them to relax more than children who don’t practice yoga. A study conducted by the Journal of Attention Disorders found that ADHD children who practice yoga are much more likely to remain focused and are less hyperactive, which in turned reduced the amount of emotional outbursts and their oppositional behavior.

A Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center study showed that people who regularly practice yoga have fewer chances of gaining weight and are more likely to lose weight. Additionally, yoga allows asthmatic children to maintain a healthy lifestyle without fear of a high-intensity exercise induced asthma attack.

Participating in Yoga-Recess is easy:

  • School Teachers: Access free educational yoga-recess videos to bring yoga into your classroom.
  • Parents, Teachers, Yogis & Businesses: Raise funds for your school, engage your community, build a fundraising team.
  • Sponsors & Media Partners: Help us promote Yoga-Recess and receive extensive benefits.

Yoga-Recess educational materials  for school teachers are FREE. The national campaign is funded by passionate school teachers, principals, parents, yogis and people wanting to improve the quality of life for children and youth.

The Yoga Health Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, grassroots organization, coordinates Yoga-Recess in Schools and National Yoga Month September (a national observance). Their mission to inspire a healthy lifestyle through national awareness campaigns is supported by thousands of yoga studios and teachers nationwide.

12 Days of Christmas Kids Yoga

The 12 Days of Christmas blog post

I have always loved the song “The 12 Days of Christmas”, especially the version by John Denver & The Muppets (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MX43ynMvm0) ….. the part where Beaker sings “me-me-me-me-me” makes me smile 🙂

So I thought it would be fun to find yoga poses to go with it. In my search for ideas I came across this fun video by Malissa Schwamm, E-RYT; RCYT at Northwest Yoga StudioPeace.Love.Yoga. in Las Vegas, NV. I saw a few other video ideas online but this was one was my fave!
