"Brain Sprinkles" I took an empty spice container, created a cute label, then filled the container with beads and glitter. I shake the container over their heads, and...boom! They are revitalized. Sometimes I use them on myself. I love to give everyone brain sprinkles right before a test. Some even ask if I can shake a little extra sprinkles for them!

Fluency 1 - Work on expression and fluency by having the students read a paragraph after choosing one of these cards that gives them a different voice or action to do while reading. It keeps their attention while they're learning different ways to read. Or you can use this to help kids remember the spelling for sight words

Learning Adventures with Mrs. Gerlach: Motivational Magic! - "Brain Spray" is water with a little glitter in it. This teacher sprays a little on her students to "activate their brains." Lots of neat motivational ideas here.
I borrowed this from Dr. Jean. It is an old coffee creamer bottle with the label removed. First I filled the bottle with about two tablespoons of rice. Then I put a piece of plastic wrap under the lid and glued the lid with my handy-dandy E-6000 glue. (If you don't have this glue - go get some!!! It will glue anything together.) The plastic wrap allows me to actually open the lid. Everyone will get a little sprinkle before our "Circle Time" begins! Very low tech, but I am hoping it will be effective!
