Brain Breaks @ OES
- Brian Parrish, Ochwilla Elementary School
- Physical Activity Participation, Teamwork, Other
At Ochwilla Elementary School, we began the in-class activity breaks and we call them brain breaks. The children do various activities like stretching, dancing to a quick song, jumping jacks, yoga poses, and running in place. The kids really enjoy it and it seems to help keep them focused during the long time periods of reading and math. They also like that it is not scheduled for a specific time - the teacher just stops the class and shouts "brain break" and announces the activity to be done.
