I am linking up with Nicole from Mrs. Rios Teaches for Gave It A Whirl Wednesday.
Kathy Griffin posted about Brain Breaks in the Bright Ideas Blog Hop. We love brain breaks in our classroom especially since the weather has made it impossible to get outside for recess. She gave some great ideas for brain breaks, but I chose one in particular to give a whirl......Just Dance on youtube.
My kiddos love to dance and get up and move around. They also love "What Does the Fox Say?" Lucky me, I found a Just Dance version of this song on youtube. Here is a fun pic and a short clip of my students following along.
After doing a little dance or two, my students are ready to calm down and work.
Kathy didn't mention this one, but since we are talking about Brain Breaks I thought I would share another great youtube video to use if you like brain breaks, yoga, and stories. :)
My friend Elizabeth from Kickin' It In Kindergarten shared Cosmic Yoga with me. My students and I are in love!
What do you do Brain Breaks in your classroom? I would love to hear in the comments below! :)
