Upper Elementary Lesson: Extra Yarn

Upper Elementary Lesson: Extra Yarn

0.00

If you haven't read the lovely book Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett, then hurry to make it part of your repertoire.  It’s got everything - a generous heroine, an evil villain, humor, magic, and mystery.  It asks kids to think deeply about the power of magic and giving, and encourages imagination and discussion.  And the book has some great vocabulary words, starting with knit, but also: ridiculous, fond, twitched, quivered, and hurl. 

For the asana portion of this storybook practice, we focused on backbends and heart openers to "help our hearts get bigger and more generous" like Annabelle's, the main character in Extra Yarn. Often we "knit" our hands together behind our back for poses.
