    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-, get the picture. They loved it, and it helped them get refocused.

      Classroom Management: Brain Breaks and Transitions. Kinetic activities to wake your kids up! Favorite choices include Trading Places (students switch seats if they have the trait a teacher calls out), Dance Party (crank up the tunes for a wiggle break), and Would You Rather (students move to one side of the room or another to indicate their choice). Very fun!
