    "Brain Break" sticks! Each popsicle stick has an activity on it {like spin 3x, jump rope, 3x jumping jacks, seat swap, etc...}. When I see that the kids are starting to fade away.... Pretty cool idea!

    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.

    Classroom management- "Brain Break" sticks! Each popsicle stick has an activity on it (spin 3x, jump rope, macarena, seat swap, etc.). When you see that the kids are starting to fade away, stop and say "Our brains need to take a break... let's do a brain break."
