Learning opposite words is such an abstract concept for young children!
I remember having some opposite word flashcards when my daughter was a toddler. But she wasn’t particularly interested in looking at them. However, adding movement helped to make the concept of opposites more concrete.
If you’re looking to teach your children about opposites, while also having some fun learning through movement, check out these yoga poses for kids below.
