Brain Breaks

Sometimes I feel like I'm going from one thing to the next with little or no transition.  I decided to start doing something called a "Brain Break".

Using craft sticks I wrote down different activities.  Whenever I feel like a lesson went long or the children need a break I call out, "Brain break time" and I pull out a stick.

Here are some of the activities in my cup:

Freeze Dance
Simon Says
Light, Nose
Toe Touches
20 Jumping Jacks
Spin around 3 times
March in place
Skip Counting
Follow the leader
Playing with a beach ball
Desk Switch
Walk like a __________ (monkey, elephant, etc)
Finger exercises

I have a whole cup full and will post more ideas tomorrow!
