    "Brain Break sticks! Each popsicle stick has an activity on it {like spin 3x, jump rope, macarena, seat swap, etc.}. When I see that the kids are starting to fade away, I stop and say "man, our brains need to take a break, lets do a brain break. The kids absolutely go NUTS for these fun little activities. None last longer than a minute and it's a great way to get them focused!"

      I think this would be a cute classroom idea for @Krissi Gashaw. "Brain Break" sticks! Each popsicle stick has an activity on it {like spin 3x, jump rope, macarena, seat swap, etc...}. When I see that the kids are starting to fade away, I stop and say "man, our brains need to take a break...lets do a brain break." I need these.

When I see that the kids are starting to fade away, I stop and say "man, our brains need to take a break...lets do a brain break." maybe a little young for middle school but i could change the break ideas

      “Brain Break” sticks! Each popsicle stick has an activity on it {like spin 3x, jump rope, macarena, seat swap, etc…}. Another teacher says "When I see that the kids are starting to fade away, I stop and say “man, our brains need to take a break…lets do a brain break. The kids absolutely go NUTS for these fun little activities. None last longer than a minute and it’s a great way to get them focused!”

      This is an awesome activity for teachers and a great idea to help adult helpers in the classroom learn transitional activities for difficult students! "Brain Break" sticks!
