Brain Breaks

Brain Breaks

Students need time to rest their brains and re-focus throughout the school day.  Brain breaks are designed to get students moving to help get blood and oxygen flowing to the brain which helps kids better remember information that they are learning. These breaks can be 5-10 minutes in length every 30-60 minutes throughout the day.
