There are some days that you have so much seat work/testing that has to get done. The students definitely get tired (crazy). That's when I reach for my cup of popsicle sticks. On each stick, I have a different activity designed to get the kids up and moving. The activities only last about 5 minutes but are a definite welcome to the students. Some examples of my brain break activities are 6 spots (I have spots numbered 1-6 around the room. I roll the dice and everyone at the number I roll sits down. They can move to the different spots around the room.), favorite songs of the students that they can freeze dance to (all educational songs), and different Yoga poses. Sometimes, we all just need a break.
