We are excited to be a part of the 31 Days of ABCs series with other bloggers to create a comprehensive resource for teaching the alphabet. Our focus is on the letter “K” and of course, we will be doing Alphabet Yoga as our learning experience. My Kindergarten students used to love learning the alphabet through movement, and now I’m excited to share with our daughter. So, we have the letter “K”, we will do some Alphabet Yoga, and now let’s add in a pretend trip to Australia!
Australian Animal Alphabet Yoga
|K is for Kangaroo
Stand tall in Mountain Pose with your feet hip-width apart, bend your knees, take your hands out in front like paws, and hop like a kangaroo.
|K is for Koala
Stand tall in Mountain Pose, wrap one leg around the other, bring your bent arms out in front of you, wrap your arms together the opposite way, and slightly bend your knees. Pretend to wrap yourself around a tree like a koala. Switch sides.
|K is for Kookaburra
From Downward-Facing Dog Pose, bring right foot to rest behind right hand, placing right foot slightly inwards, and perch like a kookaburra. Switch sides.
Can you think of any other animals starting with a “K” and invent your own Alphabet Yoga pose?
