Study after study shows that kids who get regular physical activity, even just a minute or two, experience improvements not just in their fitness levels, but in brain function, too. In addition, we have seen great improvement in classroom management issues, increasing the enjoyment and productivity of your teaching time! Some kids are wrigglers and some are mind-wanderers, while some are able to stay focused for long periods. These Brain & Body Boosters are exercises that can calm and clear the mind, relieve tension and stress and increase concentration, focus and attention span. No matter who you’re teaching, all your students can benefit from a regular physical break during the learning sessions of the day.
All these activities have three things in common:
- No resources required
- Only require 1 minute (although you can do more!)
- Suitable for teachers and kids of all fitness levels
