We often take "brain breaks" in our classroom. We take them after we have been sitting and listening for a long time, or working at our tables for a long time. We have a long morning; almost three hours before recess. Brain breaks are things like dance parties (this class LOVES to dance and has the awesome entertaining dance moves to prove it!). Brain breaks may also include:
Yoga (Me Moves)
Go Noodle on the Smartboard (a great website for kids)
Classroom games like 4 corners or 7-up
Back rubs in a long line
Below are photos of the kids playing on our "indoor track"!
