We All Need a (Brain) Break Every Once in a While!

Let's face it.  We all need a break every once in a while.  Our students are no exception.  An entire school day can be exhausting, even for the strongest students who can also tune out after a while.  I love the idea of taking brain breaks and my students have really enjoyed it as well.  As a substitute teacher, this is another one from my bag of tricks.

Dance videos can be a lot of fun and I've yet to meet a student who didn't like this.  Move the desks and put on a quick video of a coupe of minutes to get the blood flowing and the heart rate up a little!  By the way, students love to watch their teachers participate in this too!  Here are a few of my favourite Brain Break videos found on YouTube:
