Brain breaks have been all the rage for quite some time now.  We’ve learned that regularly incorporating short movement activities into the instructional day not only allows children to get their ‘wiggles’ out, but energizes them and increases their ability to focus on the next learning activity as well.  Let’s utilize the technology we have to give the kids a healthy dose of pop culture and silliness all mixed into one.  So, smack up one of these short clips on your SMART Board or Promethean Board and get to steppin’!  These videos are sure to get your students (and maybe even you) moving and grooving!

 If you like these, please be sure to check out 20 Brain Break Clips:  Movin’ and Groovin’ , 20 Brain Break Clips:  Keep on Rockin’!, and Brain Break Videos:  The Ultimate Holiday Collection. A great new site called GoNoodle.com offers yoga, breathing, dancing, and exercise videos for classroom use as well.

Tip:  I put the word ‘quiet’ in front of the You Tube URLs, which strips the advertisements, side bar, comments, etc. to ensure kid friendliness.
