A Poem of Wacky, Wonderful Noises While Clawing The Mat, CAT!

soundsIn celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday we learned how to work our feet and our hands.  Just as Suess’ Mr. Brown Can Moo!, Mrs. Cat can MEOW!   In “Mrs. Cat Can Meow! Can You?”  A Poem of Wacky, Wonderful Noises – While Clawing the Mat we allowed our inner animal out on the mat while paying close attention to our hands and feet. Are they wacky?  Are they flat?  Are they clawing the mat?  When practicing this wacky flow while making Suesserrific noises you too will learn the importance of clawing the mat.  In playing “Stop Foot, Go” (a zany spin on the all time favorite game, Musical Chairs) and studying the 4 corners of our feet we checked on our left foot and our right foot making sure they were fuzzy fur feet.  While “Roaring”, “split – splatting” and “meowing” along with Mrs. Cat we learned that when our four paws are aligned we feel more steady, more grounded, and in balance with the universe.

To push ourselves farther and to study our hands more thoroughly, we used a block in forward fold

Mrs. Cat Can Meow!  Imagine That?!  ~ A Poem of Wacky, Wonderful Noises – While Clawing the Mat

Oh, the wacky, wonderful sounds

Mrs. Cat can make!

 

She can sound like RAIN

In I Am What I Am 532746_3601707447831_1427916253_33420886_1304391162_n

Dibble, dibble

Dibble, dop

Dibble, dibble

Dop, dop, dop

 

She can sound like a LION

In Pride Plank while clawing the mat

“ROAR!”

 

She can sound like a DOG

In Down Dog

Ruff!  Ruff!  Ruff!

She can whisper, whisper

In Dark Seed Light

Like the soft whisper of a BUTTERFLY

She can hover over her mat

And spread her wings

FLAP!, FLAP!, FLAP!

While lying on her belly

In Flat Like a Pancake

 

With fingers spread wide

And her back puffed up

She can HISS!

She can CLAW!

She can stick her tail up in the air

And MEOW!  MEOW!

In Cat Scratch Fever

 

She can sound like a HORSE

KLOP!  KLOP!  KLOP!

In No Table Yes

Imagine that?!

 

She can sound like THUNDER

BOOM!  BOOM!  BOOM!

In Go To Your Room!

She can even slam the door

SMACK!

 

She can sound like a CLOCK

In Do The Twist

While moving her hands

Just like this… Tick, Tock

Tick, Tock

Tick, Tock

 

She can SPLIT!

She can SPLOT!

She can sound like a BUG

In Baby Got Back

Oh, the wonderful sounds

Mrs. Cat can make.

All while clawing her mat.
