Well designed Brain Breaks accomplish three purposes:
- they refresh students
- they refocus students for learning
- they re-energize students.
Every teacher has experienced the glazed look from students who basically need a break. When kids get tired or bored, they tend to check out. Once kids begin to check out, they are no longer learning! Enter Brain Breaks. Brain Breaks Themes capture attention and motivates students to re-engage. A short physical break also stimulates the brain and gets it ready for learning.
