The links are organized by dances and brain breaks with descriptions that include the lengths (m:s) and how I have used them, including my students' favorites. These video links are used by grades 1-5 in my school. We take a 10 minute physical activity break each day. I also use the short brain beaks during my instruction. Students learn these quickly and don't need to see the videos to do them each day. The brain breaks are also great for substitutes that do not have access to your computer. The songs in the dances are also great to play when you just want fun music (play them without showing the images to the class). A lot of the dances are from the Just Dance video games that show the students how to dance as if they were the player in the game. There are also other fun line dances that our classes love. We do some of these in the gym as a school for an All School Brain Break. Some of the brain breaks are really good for using with your class reviews and there is one 3 minute brain break created for students to do before taking a test. In all I think you and your students will love the diversity and possibilities for using these in your classroom. If nothing else they are a great reward and something fun to do before a holiday.
