"The Napping House" Literacy Integration Lesson Plan

14.95

Move and breathe through a childhood classic. The Napping House by Don and Audrey Wood has been a favorite story in my classes for years, and with a librarian’s suggestion, I brought it to life through yoga for the first time in 2012. Now accompanied by our beautiful illustrations, we can use this yoga sequence to promote a lifelong love of learning, reading, and healthy habits.

Each of the characters in the story is paired with a yoga pose, and each page adds another character in order. As the sequence builds, the poses come together in a beautiful flow. Do the poses as you read, or read and then do the poses—whatever feels the best to you.

This lesson plan is a perfect resource for teachers, parents or clinicians who want bring the story to life with movement. We’ve included a story script and a list of poses so children can learn the yoga sequence.

The Napping House Literacy Integration is a 14-page PDF download that you can view on your phone, tablet, computer or print to paper.

This download contains the following:

  • The Napping House Lesson Plan designed for kids ages 4-10

  • List of yoga poses, props and key themes that relate to the story

  • Story script to read along with The Napping House

  • Guided relaxation, meditation script, crafts, and group activities

  • The Napping House yoga sequence poster, with nine (9) poses

With love from my heart and my team to you!

About our Literacy Integrations

We love to connect literacy and movement. By combining storytime and yoga, children can develop reading skills while gaining the physical and social-emotional benefits of yoga and mindfulness. With a book and yoga mat, children can experience a new and fun way to learn while moving.

Our lesson plans include yoga sequences that can be infused while you are reading story out loud. Also included are extension activities, such as coloring pages, breathing exercises, mindfulness activities and crafts to get creative. We hope that our Literacy Integrations inspire your little ones to love reading and moving!
