Opening Song
I wiggle my fingers. I wiggle my toes.
I wiggle my ears. I wiggle my nose.
I wiggle my shoulders. I wiggle my chin.
I stretch my arms wide and pull them back in.
I wiggle my elbows. I wiggle my knees.
I hop like a bunny. I smile and say, “Cheese!”
Now I have no more wiggles left in me
And I sit on the floor as still as can be.

Early Literacy Tip: Teach both colors and numbers using this fun game: Make 2 dice, one with numbers on the sides and one with colors. (You can use square tissue boxes or other similar materials to make the dice.) Have your child roll each die to get a number and a color. Then, using paper and crayons, make that many dots of that color on a sheet of paper.

“What a Wonderful World” yoga storytime

WAWW

Opening – How I explain the rules of yoga storytime: stay on your mat and keep your hands to yourself.
(Skip to my Lou –  from Jim Gill)
Stomping feet, one and two
Stomping feet, one and two
But if my feet were covered in glue
I’d stick to the glue, my darling.

Clapping hands, one and two
Clapping hands, one and two
But if my hands were covered in glue
I’d stick to the glue, my darling
(hands in Anjali mudra, or prayer position)

Extend and Stretch
Frere Jacques
Extend and stretch (sit in sukasana – easy seated pose, or crisscross applesauce- and do seated side bends)
Extend and stretch
Twist and turn (seated twists)
Twist and turn
This is yoga, (hands overhead on “this,” then bring to prayer position on “yoga”)
This is yoga
Om sweet om, (hands in prayer, bow forward)
Om sweet om
Source: I got this from Kids Yoga Guide teacher training, but here is another from Be Grace Yoga 

Sun Salutations – I use a call and response version of Sergeant Salutations from Kidding Around Yoga. 

Open Book
Arms, legs, both
Close the book. Open the book. Turn the page.
Start seated with arms stretched out in front of you, palms touching. To “open the book,” stretch the arms wide. To close it, bring them back together. To “turn the page,” open just the right arm and close it, then the left arm and close it. Repeat “turning pages” until the kids giggle. Repeat the whole sequence using legs instead of arms. Then try arms and legs together. 

Book – What a Wonderful World based on the song by Bob Thiele and George David Weiss, as sung by Louis Armstrong. Illustrated by Tim Hopgood

Song: Louis Armstrong and Friends- “What a Wonderful World
Asana (poses):
I see trees of green (tree pose)
Red roses too (flower pose)
And I think to myself, “What a wonderful world” (hands at heart center in anjali mudra or namaste hands – repeat this mudra for every ” what a wonderful world”)
I see skies of blue and clouds of white (warrior III, both sides)
Bright blessed day and dark sacred night (extended mountain and then forward fold)
The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky… (either upward bow/wheel or down dog)
I see friends shaking hands… (thread the needle)
I hear babies cry… (happy baby pose)

Parachute GameSometimes life goes crazy (shake parachute). How do we calm it down? By taking deep breaths. Inhale the parachute up, and exhale it slowly all the way to the floor. Repeat several times. Think of scenarios where the “world goes crazy.” Your little brother stole your toy! Your teacher gave you homework! How do we make the world wonderful again? Deep breaths in and out.

Breathing ball

Savasana
This was a guided savasana. We thought about all the beautiful things in the world that make us happy. Trees of green, red roses too. Mountains, rivers. Moms, dads. Think to yourself silently, what a wonderful world.

Peace begins with me
Hold both hands overhead. On the word “peace,” touch the thumbs and pinky fingers together. On the word “begins,” touch the thumbs and ring fingers. On the word “with,” touch the thumbs and middle fingers. On the word “me,” touch the thumbs and pointers. Repeat this four times, the first time loudly and hands overhead. The second time, bring the hands down a little and speak a little softer. The third time, bring hands lower and whisper. The last time, bring hands to knees and speak words silently to self.

Early literacy tip: Playing dress-up is not only a great way to teach your children narrative skills and broaden their imaginations, but it also teaches them about the uniforms and articles of clothing we see in the world around us.

Early literacy tip:  Good narrative skills lead to good reading comprehension. Tell your child stories – even short ones. Engage in conversation with even the youngest of children. Ask your baby, “Should we get dressed now?” (pause) “Okay, let’s get dressed! First we’ll take off your pajamas…” Ask your toddler or preschooler what happened to them during their day, and then ask for more details.
