Mrs. Finley’s class has been working to earn ‘brain breaks’ in the classroom! There has been a lot of research in the benefit of movement and ‘brain breaks’ during the school day. A quick break for movement helps students to reset their brains and take a break from vigorous learning! After these short (3-4) minute breaks students return re-energized and focused for more learning!
The website, Go Noodle, has been a huge success in our room! Students picked their avatar and class name and work to earn breaks so their mascot can grow! They get to choose from relaxation activities, to zumba, to Olympic events! It rocks!
