Shake Dem Halloween Bones

 Strengthening our Halloween Bones as we read a good story, s-t-r-e-t-c-h, balance, and breathe.πŸŽƒ

Here we are as Snow White's Seven Dwarfs . . .
and Goldilocks' Bears!

"Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let your hair hang down!"

During final rest, we took an imaginary trip to a costume store?  What did you try on? πŸŽƒ

Spooky Yoga Fun

Elevator Partner Pose
for the poem, "The Ghost in Our Apartment House"πŸ‘»

We had fun with Lilian Moore's Spooky Rhymes and Riddles today!πŸŽƒ

We took turns reading and then working a corresponding yoga pose.
Here's a limerick about a dragon's whose hot breath popped corn for children so we are working "dragon pose."🐲

Johnny drew a monster! When the monster began to chase, he ERASED him!

When you move from "down dog" to "plank" and back to "down dog," it's kind of like working an eraser back and forth.

 What creeps behind you and doesn't make a sound? 

 What would a monster's pet look like?

 We tried octopus pose to illustrate!πŸ™

 "Something is there on the stair . . . "
We worked "zigzag breathing" for our staircase.

We rocked our ghost babies to sleep.

Then we rested too.😴

It was challenging to focus today after we discovered our socks stick to the brick wall . . .

YogART Field Trip

We met at the Columbia Museum of Art today!  
https://www.columbiamuseum.org/view/van-gogh-and-his-inspirations will be at the Columbia Museum of Art -- October 4, 2019-January 12, 2020.
Flower Beds in Holland is Van Gogh's first garden painting, c. 1883.  Van Gogh came to art late and left it early.  Van Gogh didn't start painting until age 27.  He created almost 900 works of art before his death at age 37.  That's an average of two per week.  Twelve of his works are included in the special exhibition.

Van Gogh's first works were dark and gloomy.
 Beef Cart, c. 1884
 Man with a Spade, Resting, c. 1882
Head of Peasant Woman with Dark Cap, c. 1882
He often painted common folk and poor peasants.

When he discovered Japanese prints, he liked the lighter colors.  He then explored more colors in his works.  We studied Hokusai, a Japanese printmaker and painter, during our yoga this past week.  Hokusai, 1760-1849, changed his name 30 times!   The name on his gravestone translates, "Old Man Mad About Drawing."

Van Gogh wished "to touch people through art." In 1885, Van Gogh stated, "People will surely recognize my work later on and write about me when I am dead and gone."

"I always knew he would either surpass us all or end up a madman.  I never thought he would do both." ~Camille Pissaro

I Am Enough

We used a visual schedule to organize our class this afternoon! Thank you, Global Family Yoga, for sharing your good ideas.πŸ’™πŸ’šπŸŒŽπŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ§˜

We read The Warrior Princess by D.L. Murphy!

Mrs. Broam heard Mrs. Murphy tell this story in a yoga class.😁

We breathed like a flower:  Inhale BLOOM, Exhale and fold your "flower petals"⚘

The frog told the Warrior Princess she was not the "right color."🐸

The lion directed the Warrior Princess to look into the lake to find the answer to her question.🦁

We rested.

We shared what we saw in the lake!

Namaste is what we say from the good in you to the good in me!πŸ™

Say, "Namaste," everyday, and the world 🌎 will live . . .

in harmony!πŸ•Š
