When students are transitioning, we typically do a Brain Break. These usually last 1-5 minutes. A wonderful website I have been using with the students this year is http://www.gonoodle.com. There are a variety of videos for me or the students to pick from. Some are relaxing, some are energizing, some are education, some are just plain silly.
Lately, the students have really been enjoying KooKooKangaroo! You can find their youtube channel here. You can also find their website here.
So why do we do Brain Breaks?
