Brain Breaks for 1st + 2nd Grade Classes
Children need breaks in order to stay engaged and focused with learning. Brain Breaks encourage a physical & mental break from learning, as well as help students stay focused during shorter laser-focused learning periods. We find that students can focus better after recharging and by knowing there will be another opportunity to move.
Why You Should Use Brain Breaks?
These Brain Breaks are meant to be used anytime during the school day or class period. These quick and easy social emotional learning activities take as little as 5 minutes to implement. The biggest benefit is that they are adaptable to YOUR classroom! You may choose to implement Brain Breaks once a day or multiple times throughout the day.
