Simon Says (Sleepy Version)
I plan on wearing pajamas and a sleeping cap, so Simon decided to go the sleeping cap route as well. 🙂
Simon is going to lead the kids through relaxing yoga poses and breathing exercises.
We’ll be using these free yoga cards and posters to show the poses to the kids. Get them here.
I use this flannel board every time I read Counting Ovejas. We count the sheep and go over colors in both English and Spanish.
My assistant Travis, who plays the guitar is in charge of the music, and I honestly don’t know what he’s picked out yet. I asked to to lean toward lullabies.
