Three Fun Books: Mr. Cookie Baker, Truck Driver Tom & Firefighter Frank (ideas for therapy & AAC)

image

 

.

I love Monica Wellington’s books! Excited that her publisher sent me these three books to add to my OMazing Kids library. Lots of fun possibilities for targeting goals in speech therapy:

* Firefighter Frank board book (smaller size and sturdy pages make board books especially easy to incorporate side-by-side with AAC; lots of great opportunities for verbs: work, wash, visit, sit, cook, eat, slide, jump, climb, go, run, spray, rescue, sleep; adjectives: clean, fast, tall, hungry, tired; prepositions: at, in, out, down, up, off; and additional core vocabulary for AAC users: is, ready, when)

https://www.amazon.com/Firefighter-Frank-Board-Monica-Wellington/dp/0525423737

* Mr. Cookie Baker (lots of great opportunities for verbs: make, count, measure, mix, roll, cut, bake, decorate, come, show, sell, close; adjectives: early, delicious, colored, hungry, proud, crowded; and additional core vocabulary for AAC users: get, make, for, out, with, in)

https://www.amazon.com/Mr-Cookie-Baker-Monica-Wellington/dp/0525477632

* Truck Driver Tom (lots of great opportunities for verbs: drive, look, haul, work, honk, stretch, fill, cross, arrive, deliver, order, eat, meet, sleep; adjectives: big, fresh, fast, slow, bumpy, busy, crowded, hungry, tired; prepositions: off, on, in, down, over, through, around, up; and additional core vocabulary for AAC users: to, for, done)

https://www.amazon.com/Truck-Driver-Tom-Monica-Wellington/dp/0525478310

Of course I also love to expand themes using toys & apps. Here are some faves to go with these themes:

{Book Reviews} 3 great books coming in May: Little Sleepyhead, Blue Boat & A Dark, Dark Cave

image
.
Check out these 3 fabulous new picture books being released this month from Penguin Random House:

.

image

* Little Sleepyhead board book by Elizabeth McPike [coming 5/10/16: http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/312764/little-sleepyhead-by-elizabeth-mcpike-illustrated-by-patrice-barton/9780399162404/#]. I love the rhyming text & sweet illustrations. Perfect for teaching body parts & a fun bedtime read.

.

image

* Blue Boat by Kersten Hamilton [coming 5/17/16 – hardcover: http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/316824/blue-boat-by-kersten-hamilton-illustrated-by-valeria-petrone/hardcover#; board book: http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/316824/blue-boat-by-kersten-hamilton-illustrated-by-valeria-petrone/boardbook. The board book has the same content other than the end sheets, credits and this two-page spread in the middle of the hardcover edition (see pic below)]. I love the rhyming text, lots of great descriptive language and action words and colorful illustrations. Perfect for kids who love boats and other transportation. I love using board book versions when I am using a book during modeling on an AAC device. The slightly smaller format and thick easy to turn pages are a good fit for that.

image

* A Dark, Dark Cave by Eric Hoffman [coming 5/24/16: http://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/314991/a-dark-dark-cave-by-eric-hoffman-illustrated-by-corey-r-tabor/#]. I love the artsy illustrations, rhyming text, great repeated line “dark, dark cave”, lots of descriptive language and spatial concepts and inspiration for imaginative play. As a bonus, the book has the following opportunities for kids yoga: crescent moon, blowing wind, bat, dog, cat, lizard on a rock, roaring, rooftop partners (for the blanket cave), sun stretch & breath, horse, bird.

I Love Sock Monkey!

 I love sock monkey post

Sock Monkeys have added a fun twist to my OMazing Kids yoga classes & speech-language therapy sessions. Admit it….. you know you can’t help but smile when you see a Sock Monkey!

Here are a few pics from the last yoga class at Camp ClapHans this summer. After doing several rounds of “pirates” & “monkey mind pirates”, I was feeling a little sad that Monkey was getting his feelings hurt. You know it’s not Monkey’s fault that he has a “monkey mind”. He just needed a little yoga 😉

We used “I Love Monkey” by Suzanne Kaufman (from Live Inspired)

book-photo2

Live Inspired sent me the fabulous “I Love Monkey Discovery Kit” (book, plush & storage box). The kids at Camp ClapHans were fascinated by the Monkey. I had several other sock monkeys but this was the “fave” Just like the story, it doesn’t matter that Monkey looks a little different (check out the tiny feet & really big arms), “You are a star just the way you are!”

I-Love-Monkey-by-Suzanne-Kaufman-4492-09

A peek inside the book:

i love monkey 1 i love monkey 2 i love monkey 3 i love monkey 4

Opportunities for Kids Yoga poses & breathing in this book: mountain, Hmm? breath and shoulder shrug, rabbit, bunny breaths, floppy rag-doll forward fold, elephant, tense/relax wrinkly face, squirrel toe-ga, sitali cool as a cucumber breath, bird, chicken dance, sushi mat roll-up, roll arms, big robot steps (Warrior I & Warrior II), monster (standing star with “claw” fingers curled + “Grrrr” breath), penguin  freeze/melt, buzzing bee breath, seated owl twist + Whoooo breath, corny sequence (Mountain with arms up – squat to cut the corn off the cob – hold as we get ready to “pop” – 5,4,3,2,1 – jump up to “pop”), sun stretch & breath, mantra: “I love being me!”.

More on their website: http://www.live-inspired.com/ilovemonkeybook/index.html

A plethora of props. Didn’t end up using them all. The nature of doing a 1 x class with a group of kids at camp is that you have to be REALLY flexible & adapt in the moment. For example, I had planned to do “Toe-Ga” as part of the classes today. But when arrived, I quickly noticed one child was wearing full length leg braces & several others had sensory issues and would have lost it over taking shoes off. So we did a standing forward fold to pick up the pom-poms instead.

Another view of the plethora of props. All in view here for the “photo opp” but then hidden out of site until each was needed. For most of the kids I work with, having this many props visible would be a sure road to chaos. As you can see I now collect Sock Monkeys (still love Moose more….. but Sock Monkey is coming in a close 2nd). As a side note, notice the pattern of the blue monkey & pink monkey….. all the “rage” this season. One question though….. when did “zig-zag” become “chevron”? When I was a kid it was “zig-zag”…. anyone else old enough to remember that? lol!

I’ve added a couple more sock monkey props to my collection since camp….. Sock Monkey says kids yoga is a ball!

481072_586287374755605_1450735313_n

The Where is Sock Monkey? game is a fun way to work on descriptive language & spatial concepts….

Found these cute mini sock monkey bendable figures at Mardel…..

Mardel also had a lot of cool colorful sock monkey supplies….. won’t have an issue with any coworkers walking off with these….

  • Monkeys – Movement Songs Children Love by Susan Marcus
  • Monkey See, Monkey Do – Musical Yoga Adventures: World Yoga Journey by Linda Lara
  • Crazy Monkeys – Namaste ‘n Play by Kidding Around Yoga
  • What I Am – Sesame Street & Will.i.am

We did an affirmation craft at the end. As we learned in the story “I Love Monkey”, you are the best at being “you” and “You are a star just the way you are”. Each child drew or wrote what they liked or are good at in each star. We then embellished it by outlining portions of the pic with glitter glue and a light sprinkling of fine neon glitter. They came out great! After that, each child got a star stone to keep as a reminder of the “sparkle” inside them.

Yippee! It appears that another Monkey Book may be in the works! From the author’s blog: http://suzannekaufman.blogspot.com/2012/03/look-and-feel-for-new-monkey-book.html

“Monkey Mind” is a term frequently used in yoga to describe when your mind runs from thought to thought and is unsettled or restless. So if a monkey practices kids yoga & mindfulness, what happens to his mind? lol!

Inspiring Kids to Add “A Little Bit of Oomph”

 A little bit of Oomph

A Little Bit of Oomph! is the amazing new book from Barney Saltzberg, author of Beautiful Oops! It teaches the valuable lesson of throwing your heart into whatever you’re doing and trying just a little bit harder— because with a little extra effort and a little bit of oomph, you can make anything beautiful. The book is filled with flaps, pop-ups, spinning circles, pull tabs, etc… that are fun to explore. I love books like this that can lead to rich discussions. Inspire creativity & greatness. Get kids to think beyond the ordinary & beyond themselves. Kids are bombarded with self-absorbed & materialistic messages on TV, in music & on social media. It’s up to responsible adults in their lives to provide opportunities for them to see a bigger picture & a bigger purpose in life. A reason to go that extra mile. A reason to add a little “oomph”!

I didn’t find any activity sheets online for the book yet so I made these using a picture from the author’s Pinterest board:

 

A Little Bit of Oomph activity sheets

.

Inspire kids to go that extra mile through involvement in service projects. See An Awesome Way to Make Kids Less Self-Absorbed on Greater Good Science Center, 35 Service Projects for Kids Yes Kidz Can! for a few ideas.

.

I am always inspired by the service projects I see on the Alluem Kids blog 🙂

Watch this fun book trailer:  http://youtu.be/WqYJ-SreCmk

.

The following items featured in the book would provide fun opportunities for kids yoga, dance or creative movement: alligator, star, seed (child’s pose), rain, flower, fish, ocean, whale, dog, book pages (easy pose – open/close legs like turning pages in a book), sing, dance (yoga freeze dance), twist & turn (poses that twist: seated twist, washing machine, helicopter, triangle, etc…), bunny, dragon, bird, elephant, heart (heart opening poses, heart mudra, etc…), oomph (invent poses with “oomph”, discuss ways to go the extra mile and add “oomph” through service projects).

The Day the Crayons Quit ~ got “2 paws up” from my Golden & a free coloring sheet

The Day The Crayons Quit - cover

I just received the copy of “The Day the Crayons Quit” that I ordered from Amazon.com. Laughed so hard as I read it aloud that I woke up our sleeping Golden Retriever, Annie. She looked so sad that she had missed some of the fun that I started over from the beginning. Okay….. yes I know it’s a little geeky to be reading to my Golden but I like to practice reading a book to get the flow of it before trying it out with the kids in my work as a SLP & kids yoga teacher at the JD McCarty Center.

This book is HILARIOUS! This will be such a fun way to work on vocabulary, feelings, humor, inferencing & more.

Annie went back to sleep after our impromptu storytime….

Annie Sleeping

So then my quest to find “freebies” to go with the book began. I didn’t find any free coloring sheets online for the book yet so I made this one:

Free printable 1-page PDF: The Day the Crayons Quit Coloring Sheet

I found one free simple activity page that I liked from the Peace, Love & Learning blog :


Watch this fun reading from Storytime with TallyMom: http://youtu.be/c1PYnbuogt0?t=1m15s

The following items mentioned by the crayons in the book would provide fun opportunities for kids yoga: fire truck, apple, strawberry, Santa, heart, grapes, dragons, pointed hat, bear, pony, puppy, wheat, elephant, rhino, hippo, humpback whale, baby penguin, tiny pebbles, cat, beach ball, crocodile, tree, dinosaur, frog, sun, monkey, ocean, lake, river, raindrops, rain clouds, princess, monster, cowboy, airplane, boat. Like the ending to the story, get “an A+ for creativity”. Would love to hear creative ideas for kids yoga poses, breathwork & activities 🙂

Visiting Feelings ~ a book with heart & purpose

20130825-232712.jpg

Be still by heart…. look at this gorgeous book “Visiting Feelings” coming out in September by Lauren Rubenstein! It is currently available on Amazon.com for pre-order for $10.17 hardcover (32% off). Release date: 9/15/13.
Order at: http://amzn.com/1433813394.

I just ordered a copy and am challenging everyone who follows my page to do the same.

This is the first time I have put forth a challenge like this. Why? And for a book I haven’t even seen in person yet?

Read this description: “Beautifully descriptive prose and delightful illustrations cultivate a message of mindfulness and emotional awareness to help children fully experience the present moment. Rather than labeling or defining specific emotions and feelings, Visiting Feelings invites children to sense, explore, and befriend any feeling with acceptance and equanimity. Children can explore their emotions with their senses and nurture a sense of mindfulness. Gaining this objectivity allows space for a more considered response to the feelings. Practicing mindfulness can also enhance many aspects of well-being, help develop insight, empathy, and resiliency. Includes a “Note to Parents to provide more information about emotional awareness, and suggests ways to seamlessly incorporate mindfulness practices into your child and family’s daily routines.”

If that’s not enough to seal the deal, read this review on Anxiety-Free Child: http://anxietyfreechild.com/visiting-feelings/.

And she is donating the proceeds to Go Give Yoga http://www.gogiveyoga.org/volunteers/lauren-rubenstein-psyd

Wouldn’t it be cool if this book went viral and sold out even before it’s released?!

Please “like” and “share” this pic with as many folks as you can: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.602434699807539.1073741861.174264525957894&type=1&l=a203d9abc7

Goldilocks & the 3 Grounded Bears – a classic tale with a kids yoga twist

We have been having a fun discussion on the OMazing Kids Yoga Facebook page about great picture books and stories to use in yoga with kids 2-10 years of age!

One of the many great ideas shared was to use Goldilocks & the 3 Bears. Several folks were intrigued by that so Jessica Millen at Grounded Yoga Chicago (http://groundedyogachicago.com/) e-mailed me the details to share since it was too long to post in the comments on Facebook.

Here are the details in a 1-page printable PDF:

If you have questions about the lesson plan, feel free to send Jessica an e-mail: warm123@me.com
