Combining basic yoga movements into library storytime is
becoming more popular. 

Yes, yoga storytime is both adorable and fun, but with a
little understanding and intentionality, it can also be a powerful strategy for
boosting early learning.

This webinar will provide a basic introduction to yoga
storytime. Research into the relationship between movement and early literacy
will be shared, along with yoga's natural alignment with young children's
playfulness and imagination.

 Simple shapes, great books, and fun songs will all
be shared, leaving participants ready to move in their next storytime!

At the conclusion of
webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Define
    physical literacy

 

  • Understand
    how movement can enhance preschool early learning

 

  • Know
    several basic yoga shapes they can comfortably use with preschoolers

 

  • Know
    several books they can adapt for physical storytelling
