Product Description
JUST IN TIME FOR BACK TO SCHOOL... Do you want FUN brain breaks cards to actively get to know your students? These 28 cards feature questions that students pick a response to by doing an exercise or movement. For example: “If you’re a…Girl, flap your arms 10 times, Boy, do 10 arm circles” or “If you… Like to play sports, hop on 1 foot for 10 seconds. Do not like to play sports, touch each thumb to each finger 10 times”. Each card also comes with a visual drawing of what the movement should like look. (This is very basic clipart, and not fancy/complex clipart.)
All you have to do is print these cards and optionally laminate / hole punch. These cards can be printed double sided. The first set is basic cards that can be printed double or single sided (pages 3-17). The second set is the same as the first except there is a visual for where it can be hole punched (pages 18-32).
All of the movements / exercises require no additional equipment. These cards can also help to support self regulation by teaching students exercises that can be performed when feeling heightened. In addition, this is perfect for working on core strength and balance.
This is perfect for a WHOLE class break, small group or individual students!

This engages students in different sensory motor strategies. This is perfect for general education students but also students with Autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, ADD, sensory processing disorder, and other special needs. This can be used with general education, RTI, MTSS, special education, occupational therapy, speech language pathology, and social work.

This supports core strength, crossing midline, coordination, gross motor, and motor planning.

I am a school occupational therapist who has a doctorate in occupational therapy. I work closely with special education and general education staff adapting material. This is where I get my inspiration for this material.
