Be a Cat, Be a Tree

Yoga is a wonderful form of exercise. Here, pupils engage in two creative movement exercises. They make two yoga poses; the cat and the tree. The cat is actually sometimes known as the cobra in yoga terms. Both of these movements will feel really good to your kids when they need a stretch. Some kids may have more success with the tree pose if they are leaning against a wall. This is based on the Arthur episode, "DW Flips."

I have been told by seasoned educators not to "re-invent the wheel" when coming up with ideas for lessons. So true!! Lesson Planet has a wealth of sources and ideas from some of the greatest teaching minds that are out there...what a blessing to have a resource such as Lesson Planet, to turn to. I am even planning to contribute a lesson or two myself. My daughter is in a teacher education program and I have introduced her to the "Planet". We're spreading the news!
