Creative Yoga for Children offers a simple, ready-to-teach Montessori-based yoga program for children age twelve and under. Following age-appropriate classroom themes, the book's forty detailed, one-hour lessons are designed to supplement any learning environment and are accessible to parents and teachers alike--no special training is required. In a recent study by California State University, Los Angeles, yoga was found to improve students' behavior, physical health, academic performance, and attitudes toward themselves. Research also shows that the benefits of yoga are particularly strong among children with special needs. This book demonstrates how yoga can become a fun daily practice inside or outside the school classroom. Enhanced with over 100 black and white photos, the book's themes, or lessons, are divided by age range (ages four to six, seven to nine, and ten to twelve) and explore topics based on the child's developmental level. For four- to six-year-olds there are twenty hour-long lessons on subjects ranging from colors and the holiday seasons to sounds and words. Ten hour-long lessons for seven- to nine-year-olds introduce such topics as the body, countries of the world, botany, zoology, and the universe. For ten- to twelve-year-olds, ten hour-long lessons cover the environment, geometry, the Earth, fractions, the food chain, and more. Following the structure of a classroom lesson plan, each lesson incorporates elements of yoga including poses, breath work, meditation, and mindfulness. A discussion of the theme and intention of the lesson is followed by a warm-up of yoga poses. The children then engage in a cooperative "connecting" activity designed to bring them together, and a fun and lively theme-oriented activity that involves movement and awareness. The class winds down with breath work, a craft, and often a story. Finally, there is relaxation time and a guided meditation. With this preset structure, the children feel safe while being challenged and inspired. Derived from the educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori and the author's own experience in the classroom and yoga studio, Creative Yoga for Children allows children to move at their own pace and to be free to learn and grow within a non-competitive, nurturing setting. An essential resource for the 4,000 certified Montessori schools in the U.S., this book will appeal to yoga teachers, classroom teachers, parents, and anyone who works with children.

In response to today's needs to tailor instruction for the lower grades (pre-K-4), this new text features sample lessons for virtually every major literacy skill/strategy and offers numerous reinforcement suggestions and generous listings of materials appropriate for the lower grades. The methods emphasized are those that have been validated by research and/or practice. Extensive coverage is provided for areas of instruction mandated by federal programs such as Reading First: phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. However, the text also presents the theories behind the methods, so readers will be free to choose, adapt, and/or construct their own approaches as they create a balanced program of literacy instruction. Features "Lessons" appear throughout the text and provide step-by-step lesson plans for nearly every area of literacy instruction. All lessons include suggestions for assessment. Emphasis on English language learners within regular classrooms, including coverage of Sheltered English, of assessment for ELLs throughout the text, and more children's books for both struggling readers and ELLs, and marginal annotations on Adapting Instruction for English Language Learners. "Help for Struggling Readers and Writers" section concludes Chapters 3-13 and provides practical, specialized suggestions for helping students become stronger readers and writers and for ways in which teachers can adapt instruction or assessment to meet the needs of underachieving readers and writers. To make the text as practical as possible, each chapter concludes with an "Action Plan" that provides specific suggestions for applying each of the key concepts and assessment and teaching suggestions discussed in the chapter. "Children's Reading List" appears in every chapter, providing lists of appropriate titles for skill reinforcement. "Exemplary Teaching" boxes throughout the text bring teaching techniques to life with real-life experiences of gifted teachers and the author's own experiences. An "Essential Standards" section lists specific literacy curriculum goals so students and professors can focus on key objectives, and "Assessment" sections provide specific focus on evaluation issues and ideas for individual chapters (Chs. 3-13). Emphasis on guided reading and matching readers with appropriate texts for grades Pre-K-4. Unique "Leveling Books System," enables students to better understand what makes a book difficult to read and provides an easy-to-use system so that they can level books on their own. Widely used leveling systems are explained and compared. Sources of extensive lists of leveled books are provided (Ch. 2). Unique Appendix A includes a graded listing of 1,000 books where suggestions are made for easy, average, and challenging fiction and informational books at each grade level (Pre-K to 4). Students will have ready access to the readabiltiy levels of the most popular books in grades Pre-K to 4. The use of technology has also been highlighted. Going beyond simply listing interesting Websites, the text has specific age-appropriate suggestions for teaching students how to use the Internet as a learning tool in grades Pre-K to 4.
