In-Class Physical Activity Breaks — Good For Mind and Body

Physical Activity Participation
Being at a K-2 grade school, our students need extra movement throughout the course of the day. At the beginning of the school year, I sent an email to the classroom and special area teachers with links involving movement for children. They're super quick breaks to recharge and re-energize the class to help focus on the upcoming material. Teachers have given positive feedback for the breaks and say it's truly helping the students stay involved in their classwork throughout the day.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Our students are more engaged and focused in their learning throughout the day. They ask and look forward to the Brain Breaks to let out some wiggles.
