Appropriate for students of varying ages and abilities. Incorporate a brain break into your ELA block or story time. I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie by Allison Jackson is a fun book to read at Thanksgiving time.
Pictures can be easily displayed on an interactive white board or document camera.
Do this during or following a read aloud of this book or, if your students/children are familiar with this story, do it as a quick brain break and sequence review. I like to change the line, "Perhaps she'll die" to "Perhaps she'll cry" as we all take a big inhale and then exhale with a BOOHOO!
Yoga brain breaks help to increase comprehension and focus while decreasing anxiety. Also a great tool to help manage classroom behaviors. When students need to move around and get the wiggles out, it's time for a yoga brain break!
