  • Archer (Archer Pose)

    Children can practice Archer Pose with a toe hold variation while learning our Archer song! Archer Pose stretches the arms and legs while working the core. It's a great way to ground and focus our energy and to stabilize through the trunk.

  • Papillon (Butterfly Pose)

    Kids can practice their yoga and their French in our learning song about a little papillon, or butterfly.

  • Bonjour Les Fleurs (Flower Pose)

    Bonjour! In our French Fleurs song, kids can practice balancing in Flower Pose while singing in French. Some students speak French at home and some are learning it for the first time. Learning languages builds new pathways in our brains and assists with social-emotional learning!

  • Sleepy Rabbits (Rabbit Pose & Child's Pose)

    Kids can practice Rabbit Pose and Child's Pose with our original Sleepy Rabbit song! Both Rabbit Pose and Child's Pose are forward bends, which stretch our arms and back and send freshly oxygenated blood to our brain to increase focus and calm stress. Forward bends are very grounding. When classr...

  • Mama's Sleeping (Sing Along)

    Kids can play with volume, rhythm and tempo in our dynamic song about dynamics! Folding music into education creates repetition and helps anchor themes and activities in children's minds.

  • I Am a Rainbow (Sing Along)

    Affirmations create mindfulness and help us practice well-being. Say an affirmation that connects with each color of the rainbow. Celebrate the wide range of feelings we all have every day!

    Kids can practice musically stretching with Dan! Adding music to a school curriculum can help children remember material and add a little bit of joy to their day!

  • Feather Blowing (Breathing)

    Did you know that teaching children to tune into their breath can be very self-regulating for them? Here kids can practice taking deep breaths with Dan, blowing feathers in an activity that includes eye tracking and hand-eye coordination.

  • Wash Your Hands

    Cough into your elbow,
    Wash your hands

    Please don't pick your nose, (Ewww!)
    Wash your hands

    I throw away a tissue (Ploop!)
    Wash your hands

    Time to eat my lunch now (Yummy!)
    Wash your hands

    After the potty (Flush!)
    I pull up my clothes
    And I wash my hands

    And dry them off. All clean!

    Children can sing-along with Dan and Rachel and learn all about the concept of changing their minds! This is a great sing along-song for early education, meeting rugs, and social-emotional learning!

    Sometimes you just need a transition between classroom activities! In our original Home song kids can sing along with Dan, practicing musical dynamics.

Here, kids can practice singing together and crossing the midline of their bodies, fostering cellular connections in their Corpus Callosum and improving right/left brain communica...
