We all know that feeling of staring at a screen for too long—eyes glazing over, concentration slipping away, fatigue setting in—and it’s no different for our students, especially during remote learning. Brain breaks can be a powerful way to help kids stay focused and engaged, improve their overall mental wellbeing, and even boost their academic success.
I love Brain Breaks. I think they are great for building community and set the tone that your classroom is fun and engaging (even if your content is sometimes dry!!)
But for years, I could NEVER remember to do them! I would have them all saved on my phone, but would never remember to pull them out.
I needed notes, or “cheat sheets,” that were stored conspicuously in the room.
So I made some. And I want to share them with you!
Three Brain Breaks for Big Kids

I recommend you print and laminate them, and then hang them from a binder ring on your door.
I hope you and your students love them as much as we do!
