Start With a Story I Am Yoga Overview

Start with a Story: I Am Yoga

Designed for all learning environments, the Start with a Story program ties the works of New York Times best-selling author and illustrator Peter H. Reynolds to hands-on SEL, literacy and STEAM activities. Each lesson pack focuses on one book and includes five or more lessons to inspire creative learning and story activation for students in grades k-5. While teachers can begin with any lesson, we encourage instructors to start with a book reading and an SEL activity and/or the team-building activity before moving onto animation, engineering, and/or journaling.

About Start with a Story: I Am Yoga

Just like the character in I Am Yoga, we can all feel overwhelmed sometimes. In this lesson pack, students will explore the connection between their mind, emotions, and body while practicing techniques for finding calm. They will also get to practice mental flexibility - an important aspect of creativity.

The combination of STEAM, physical, creative, and reflective activities in this pack provides a well-rounded way to engage with a book, attending to the whole child. We hope you enjoy Start with a Story: I Am Yoga.

Note: Licenses to Animation-ish and FabMaker Studio are recommended for two of the lessons. If you would like to purchase autographed books by Peter H. Reynolds visit his online bookshop, The Dot Central.
