  • Mountain Pose – “Grow roots”.
  • Tree – alone on both sides.
  • Tree Circle – Then tree all together.
  • Mountain
  • Warrior 1 – Feel your feet sinking into the earth > Forward fold and mountain
  • Warrior 1 on the other side > Forward fold and mountain
  • Social/Emotional Game – Archetype Game – *The first couple times to play just use animals. Then use archetypes (would make for a great literacy connection with character traits).

  • Relaxation – Changing Channels using animals as a theme.
