Mini Mind and Movement Break Cards
This is a set of 72 break cards to support children when they need a physical or mental break from work.
Sometimes in my class, children can reach a level of frustration when they are doing work. A workload demand is often put on children and this can cause them to lose concentration and focus because and if they continue on this path this can sometimes lead to a display of undesirable behaviours. To alleviate these frustrations we often prompt children to take a much needed distraction break and these cards support these such breaks. There are 36 cards for movement breaks and then a further 36 cards for mind breaks. Giving children this freer form of thinking and action time allows them to be more productive in their more focused tasks. In class children simply set a 1 minute timer and complete the short mini break. (If they feel they need more than his then obviously they can choose different cards or spend a longer period of time on each one.)
