The fastest way to keep your students engaged
It's an all too familiar sight: that glazed look in your students' eyes. They've been sitting or listening for too long. What they need is an Energizing Brain Break—a quick physical and mental challenge that's like hitting the refresh button on your computer, but for your students.
This practical full-color flip book contains 50 highly effective, classroom-tested brain breaks that you can put to immediate use across the grades. No preparation or supplies are required; just one to two minutes of your time when you see a need. You'll find pictures, directions, and online videos for activities such as:
- Slap Count Letters: students alternate slapping each other's hands while spelling a word
- Rock, Paper, Scissors, Math: partners reveal a certain number of fingers to each other, and the first person to add them together wins
- Bizz-Buzz: groups of students count from 1 to 40 using a combination of numbers and words
There's no better way to help students remain sharp and alert, reenergized to take on the next task of learning!
Also available in these versions for free with your purchase: Videos, PowerPoint, SmartBoard.
