Incorporate a yoga brain break in the classroom during your ELA block, story time, social skills break, or anytime your students/children need to refocus with a movement break. The breathing acivities teach children to self-regulate. Yoga brain breaks are also great as part of your child's bed time routine or as part of your home-school schedule. Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendack is a childhood classic about a little boy who causes mischief and is sent to bed without supper. He goes on a grand adventure in his imagination only to discover that home is where he really wants to be. Great for young children learning about reality versus fantasy and the power of imagination.
In the classroom, each page of the brain break can be easily displayed on an interactive white board or printed and displayed on a document camera. The Boardmaker images make it easy to view the pose and are appropriate for students of varying ages and abilities.
