TTT: Brain Breaks

Fun fact: I interned in a high school, teaching Grade 9 Language Arts, Social Studies, Health, and Grade 9-12 Dance… so, you can imagine my first few months of teaching Kindergarten were quite the adventure! One of the MANY things I quickly learned when I began my journey as a primary teacher is the amount of brain breaks they need.  Not only do they LOVE it, it is actually imperative to their learning.  I could go on forever about how important they are, but instead you can read this little article here.

So, what do I do for brain breaks in my classroom ask?! GO NOODLE! It is FREE, the kids LOVE it, and there are so many to choose from!

    This is SO awesome. Brain breaks are part of my Professional Growth Plan for the year. I want to be more committed to them than I have in the past. Usually, I’ve just done Just Dance videos from you tube. This is way more kid friendly and I LOVE how you can choose the length of them!!! Thanks for the tip!

      Awe, well wasn’t this a perfectly timed blog post… I love when that happens! I am so glad you have found value in it. I don’t know know if you noticed or not but there are also calming ones as well which can be nice after recess when they are flying high… haha!
      Thanks for the sweet comment! Happy teaching 🙂

    I brought a wii in and we took turns with the 4 remotes doing just dance! The kids without the remotes follow along or create some new dance moves!
