My colleagues and I are always looking for ways to give students a chance to move during the day. We came up with these quick activities that can happen any time your class needs a brain break and a few minutes to get up and move.
You can use giant foam dice if you have them or even Smart Board dice, which the kids love. The idea is to do a few activities, or as many as needed for the time you have. You can vary it however you want. What we've been doing is:
Roll 2 dice and add them together.
Do that number's activity that many times (e.g. roll a 4 = 4 jumping jacks or roll a 12 = rapid feet for 12 seconds)
We always like to end with some calming breaths.
I simply print these 2 pages out on colored paper, laminate them and hang them up where everyone can see them.
Enjoy a nice brain break for yourself while your students get their wiggles out too!
Thanks for downloading this freebie!
