Love this.... I used 5-4-3-2-1 with a fourth grade class last semester. There were too many students to do jumping jacks, so we shook out each hand then each foot. So, it was a 5-5-5-5, 4-4-4-4-, 3-3-3-3....you get the picture. They loved it, and it helped them get refocused. middle school, student, brain breaks, fourth grade classroom ideas, movement activities, teacher, fourth grade activities, jumping jacks, kid
