Brain Breaks at Roosevelt High

Christal Brakhage,   Roosevelt High School
Taking a Brain Break is good to get your mind going. Some teachers have implemented Brain Breaks into their lessons to help their students in the classroom. It is a short break that they can do before a lesson, in the middle of a lesson or at the end of a lesson. The Brain Break is used to get the kids out of their seats, incorporate movement and then once the blood flow is going the students can then refocus and start their lesson again.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The adults introduced the Brain Breaks and the students tried them. Both parties were happy with the refocus of the group of students.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

I noticed the students were more focused after implementing the Brain Breaks. They enjoyed getting up out of their seat and moving around, getting their heart rates up. They then seemed more focused on their lesson after the movement.

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

I plan on introducing this to all of the teachers during a faculty meeting so others can be involved. Hopefully they will like the idea and continue it for years to come.
