Learn With Yoga ABC Yoga Cards for Kids Review

Learn With Yoga ABC Yoga Cards for Kids

Christine Ristuccia, M.S. CCC-SLP, illustrated by Charles Beryl

This is the cutest set of yoga cards designed to help your children learn their alphabet while practicing yoga. This set of cards is "an innovative combination of yoga postures and language development postures activities written specifically for young children." The cards blend the calming aspects of yoga with learning. "Learning is significantly enhanced when movement is  part of the activity. Movement engages the senses and stimulates brain activity". I can vouch for this- when I was in college I would read my text books while on the stair stepper and I really did retain more of the information than when I was just sitting and reading.

The set includes: 28 ABC Yoga Cards and 26 Instructor Cards to go along with (along with instructions). The cards have super cute, clear pictures so your child can see what pose they should be doing. Above the graphic is an upper and lower case script letter. So the "A" card, for example, has Aa in the upper corner and the post is "archer" so there is a picture of a girl holding that pose. Heres the A card:

The back of the card details the pose benefits and has verbal cues you can read to your child (or they can read on their own) telling them how to properly perform the pose. The coordinating instructor card also has the verbal cues and includes "reading readiness" that guides you in teaching your child alphabetic principles, phonemic awareness, syllable segmentation, and rhyming.

My niece will be visiting next month & I cant wait to try these out with her. I love "games" that are also learning activities and also sneak in some exercise! Very cute. The box says ages 2 and up. I received these cards to review from 411 Video Information.

    Hope you DH's bike gets fixed soon. That's a real pain.

    The LOL cats were extra cute today! By the way, haven't seen any of your Hello Kitty stuff lately. I got Hello Kitty mittens for Xmas but I'm sure they're not genuine HK. But there still cute. I get a lot of compliments on them but I bet people are wondering why a grown women would be wearing children's mittens! I love them and that's all the counts, right! Have a great weekend!
