Storybook Yoga at East Lake

The East Lake School Library under Mrs. Susman, lead her kindergarten classes in Storybook Yoga based on Eric Carle’s 50 year old classic, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Our kinesthetic activity was inspired by Mrs. Krakoff’s interactive video conference with The Eric Carle Picture Book Museum of Art, which highlighted the author/illustrator’s creative process and signature collages. Students followed the lead from Jaime  from Cosmic Kids! as she interpreted the story while Mrs. Susman’s kindergarten students physically acted out the sequenced scenes. In addition, students made connections between the different yoga activities done in their Physical Education classes and their movements through literacy.
