Is your class having trouble maintaining self regulation for sustained focus and attention? Providing short classroom exercise or brain breaks during the school day can help improve on-task behavior. These can also be used for an occupational or physical therapy session, as a warm up or full therapy activity. This set includes three ways/games to play, with both color and black/white options. Six exercises included: lunges, sit ups, squats, stretch, push ups and jumping jacks.
1. Roll and Exercise: Print and laminate boards. Students roll a die to see which movement they must complete. Great small group or full classroom motor break. You can decide how many exercises are completed, or have students roll a larger number die (I use 12 sided) to find out how many of each they need to do.
2. Spin and exercise: Print and laminate boards. Add a spinner with a paperclip and Brad fastener or have students hold a pencil over a paper clip and “flick”. One spin for exercise choice and one spin for how many times to complete the exercise.
3. Exercise Memory: For best results: print on card stock, cut out and laminate cards. Find a match and complete the exercise 10 times. Make two copies to have more choices in the game. Can also match color to black and white versions.
