Each of these 60 brains breaks is not only super-fun, but also quick and easy! Everything you need is on the card. Just print, cut, and go. No gluing needed!
These 60 brain breaks have been carefully selected and created to meet the following criteria:
*** They all require students to get up out of their seats and move!
*** Every student is involved…none are just watching.
*** They can be completed in less than five minutes - many take less than a minute.
*** They require very little if any prep - most require no prep at all.
*** No special materials are needed - a few require pencils, music, or other easily attainable objects.
*** They do NOT require the use of a video or video game.
*** They are fun!
While there are a few old favorite (Simon Says, Dance Party), many are likely ones you have never tried before. Six blank cards are also included for you to create your own. In addition, there is a page with suggestions for use.
What teachers have said about this resource:
♥ I cannot believe how quick these brain breaks go! My kids adore they them! They beg me to do another every time (I only allow one though because it isn't recess!) They are usually able to focus better after one of these quick breaks also. They love the brain break where they hide a classmate's shoe...hysterical!
♥ My fifth graders LOVE these! I don't even want to tell them that they are not my idea! They think I am a genius! 60 seconds of this and they are back on track!

♥ My kids love these. I printed them on cardstock and had them laminated. We take turns picking a card from the bag - reading the instructions and leading the activity. Great cards.
