    "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.

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!

Brain Breaks....great idea for academically heavy days!

I could use these brain breaks to allow students a few minutes in long periods of working. I like the idea of the popsicle sticks because it allows for more variety than using the same few over and over.

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.

I like this...kids can think about their feelings and what they or us teachers can do to help make things better for them
