Incorporate a yoga brain break into your ELA block, story time, or anytime your students/children need to refocus with a movement break. I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bell by Lucille Colandro is a fun book to read at Christmas time. All the crazy things she swallows makes for an active, up and down yoga sequence to get your students’ wiggles out!
The yoga sequence can be easily displayed on an interactive white board or printed and displayed on a document camera. The Boardmaker images make it easy to view the poses and are appropriate for students of varying ages and abilities.
Use this brain break following a read aloud of this picture book or, if your students/children are familiar with this story, use it as a sequence review.
