Anytime your student begins to feel restless and is struggling to pay attention, try one of these Brain Breaks. Most only take a few minutes and help to take their mind off of the lesson plan at hand – allowing them to get up, stretch and engage in an activity that uses a different part of their brain. When the activity is done you can get back to the lesson plan with your student engaged and ready to focus.
