Keep your students focused and engaged

Do your students’ eyes glaze over when they have been sitting or listening for too long? Do your colleagues yawn during meetings? The remedy for these scenarios is to use brain breaks—quick physical and mental activities that are perfect for transitions and help learners re-focus and refresh. Proven by research to aid in cognition and retention, brain breaks are great for all ages, including adults.

Teachers love David Sladkey’s bestselling Energizing Brain Breaks. In More Energizing Brain Breaks, Scott Miller provides new activities that challenge the mind and get the body moving. With an easy-to-use flipbook format, this resource features:

  • 50 new quick activities from which to pick and choose
  • Plenty of variety, including individual, partner, and group activities
  • Activities suitable for all grade levels, as well as college and adult professional learning

There is no better way than a brain break to help students remain alert, energized, and ready to take on the task of learning!
