This month’s mindfulness for kids activities will focus on a wonderful theme: New Year! I’m not gonna use a new story read aloud, we will practice some yoga poses and breathing techniques with the help of New Year & Christmas visuals.
I have found great Christmas – New Year mindfulness for kids freebies to print out or share online. Here is the first one I wanna show you. These are deep breathing posters you can download and use in the classroom. Actually there are more of them in this website but these are the ones I wanted to use for this month 🙂
New Year Deep Breathing for Kids
New Year Yoga Poses for Kids
Here is the second poster which will be perfect to use for New Year theme lessons. My kiddos already know these yoga poses from our first lesson plan, so it will not be the first time they practice these moves. Only the vocabulary will be different which is gonna be great!
This poster is super useful but I have to show my students what these words mean. That’s why I needed to create a new pack to teach them the meanings of the moves. “Candle, log fire, moon, new year tree and snowflake” are the images I’ve added next to the original visual I’ve taken from Kids Yoga Stories.
I think this lesson plan looks OK <3 I don’t wanna squeeze things this month, so next month I will be recommending a new app I’ve found for kids.
or you can visit it in preview mode to view the latest changes without downloading a copy to your computer.
Thank you for being here…
