Brain Breaks at Pleasant Hill Elementary
Students and teachers at Pleasant Hill Elementary School in Des Moines, Iowa have seen the benefits of incorporating Brain Breaks into their daily routines. Staff have been using GoNoodle to promote physical activity and increase attention for their students. As an added perk, the teachers are even allowed to wear work out clothing on Workout Wednesdays.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

As a school, we have really seen increased attention among our students. It has also been a great way for teachers to engage with their students and build relationships.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

The added bonus of letting teachers wear workout clothing has really been a great motivator for keeping the Workout Wednesdays going throughout the entire school year.

How did you accomplish your goals?

With the help of administration, we have made this a part of our school culture. This has really helped us to gain buy-in from the staff and students.
