Brain Breaks for the Classroom!

Brain breaks for the classroom

Pencil fidgets - They allow the student to have something to move around in their hands. Students that require such fidgets have a need for sensory stimulation, and fidgets provide that within the classroom setting. I know about 50 kids... and myself who would benefit from these.

Brain Break/ Energy boosters for quick pick me ups!

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." Then I randomly select a popsicle stick and we do the activity together. 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!
