    Brain breaks. Activity sticks for when the kids are getting restless. Teacher draws a stick, all the kids do it. Examples: get in order, 10 jumping jacks, dance party, switch seats, sign language ABCs, would you rather . . ., etc.

    1 minute activities to get the kids up and moving :-) Sometimes they just need a break! @Rebecca Wiggins teaching idea?:)

    Brain Break!!! 1 minute activities to get the kids up and moving. Sometimes they just need a break! I might also make some with short, higher order thinking prompts for my advanced students who finish assignments early. Could just grab one and hand it to them or teach them to go up and get one when they find themselves done before everyone else and are tempted to do nothing.

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.
