I read this aloud to elementary students in my yoga class, and they enjoyed it! I did a little preview of each pose with them first, so they would know how to do them.
I am a special education teacher who works primarily with students who need academic support as well as sensory and/or emotional regulation accommodations. I have been using “Kids yoga Stories” posters that Giselle posts freely and have found that students in grades K-5 gravitate to the beautifully illustrated poses and regularly visit my room where the posters are displayed. Children eagerly practice the poses and then are ready to rejoin their classrooms. Because I have seen such success with these yoga cards and posters, I had to purchase books. I am so glad that I did! “The Grateful Giraffe” is not only a quality resource for introducing and furthering a student’s experience with the regulating effects of yoga poses, but it is truly a literary masterpiece. This story exposes children to alliteration with highly engaging text and beautiful illustrations. I am so excited about my purchase and look forward to adding more titles to my classroom.
As always, I find the materials fun and engaging! Thank you for creating and sharing!
Fall Yoga Cards for Kids
My students love these poses! The best part is seeing their balance improve week after week in tree pose . They like to show off to each other and then we name different trees that each student chooses to be during our TREES study. Thank you !
My 3 year old class is studying farms/fall/farm
animals. And we just started our daily yoga poses! What a perfect combination!!
I have brought pieces of yoga techniques into the classrooms over the last 18 yrs.
Centering: Teaching my 2 children back in the day: to bring quiet back to themselves.
Stretches, breath, and lot's of love: It works!
Thank you for your support that I as a mom and educator can pull information from and introduce concepts simply: SEL standards of Health & Wellness.
Wonderful resources! Love how they incorporate poses into the thematic story in a very kid friendly way. I especially like the extra detail for those who are not familiar with yoga and the monthly focused breathing and the vinyasa to use! Very satisfied!
Highly recommended product! I have used the posters, the breathing techniques, the yoga poses and the meditations with my primary students and they love it!!!! awesome purchase!
I'm so glad to have discovered Kids Yoga Stories products as I begin my journey as a new youth yoga instructor!
We use this for theatre warm ups. They pair nicely with animal themed stories we're acting out. The visuals are delightful and the instructions are clear and simple!
I planned to use this book for one day of a five day kids yoga camp I taught in June 2020, and I ended up theming my entire week around it. The kids (and I) learned about so animals native to Australia. We had fun reviewing the poses we had learned earlier in the week and then adding in new ones as the week progressed. Each child also did a personalized Australian animal alphabet flow for the letter of his/her name. Thank you!
This pack is great, it has a plan for the 8 weeks of summer. Each day with new themes and focus. It allows me to spend less time planning and gives me more time for me and the kids to actually DO the activities. With this current climate it’s brilliant. Thank you so much
