Are you looking for a way to teach your children to focus, coordination, self-awareness, control, strength, balance, flexibility, and confidence? Well we have found a product that does all that and even teaches yoga to children as well! We were given the Scooter & Me Active Play & Social Skills Program which contains 9 yoga/movement story video classes as a digital download to review. Yoga is something that I have wanted to work on with the kids for quite a while but just never found the right program to teach the kids with. Self regulation skills is something I regularly work on teaching to the kids especially my kiddos that struggle with learning to self regulate when they are having sensory issues. Move With Me Action Adventures is an award winning interactive yoga story program. It takes yoga and makes it child friendly and inviting for kids. It is recommended for children age 3-7, but even my older boys have enjoyed this program.
Your child will watch the DVD or downloadable video file and follow along with the child friendly yoga story lead by a very engaging teacher-story teller. While watching they will follow along and act out the characters in the story all while learning yoga, creative movement, practicing self regulations techniques (called adventure skills) that characters from the story use when they are frustrated, scared, angry, etc. it helps them to make a smart choices.
Each of the DVD’s/ videos is 25-30 minutes long and includes a warm up to get the kids ready, a story with movement that teaches kids yoga skills, relaxation, and then they go onto review any skills learned. There are 9 different Scooter & Me stories and each of them work on teaching your child different self regulation techniques, and also teaches them different yoga moves. The lessons are taught in a way that is enjoyable and really engages children all while having fun listening and doing actions to a story. The self regulation skill they teach your child to overcome are sad, anxious, scared, and other feelings.
Throughout the program they also teach children to drink water frequently, eat fruits and veggies, play, move and exercise every day, and how to breathe to calm yourself down when you are upset or anxious. Following each of the videos you and your child will reflect on the physical and self regulation skills each of the lessons has taught about, they provide different points to talk about from the lesson in the guides they provide you with.
Here is a short video that will show you a small portion of the program.
How Have We Been Using the Scooter & Me Program and our Thoughts About it?
We have been using the program 3 days a week to start our homeschool day with the 4 younger kids for a few weeks now. This program has been engaging to the kids and they follow along through the whole program and have actually been learning some of the self regulation skills to use at different points and times through out our school day. I would recommend this program to anyone who is looking for a fun and easy way to teach their younger children how to incorporate yoga skills as well as anyone looking to teach their children how to self regulate through out the day.
