Brain Breaks

I've been trying to clean out some files on my computer (which is truly a daunting task!!!) and I came across this listing of Brain Breaks that I compiled for the teachers at my school a few years ago.  Some of the activities are ones that I'm sure you've heard of but hopefully a few energizers might be new to you.  My students always LOVED the activity called "Show Me, Don't Show Me."  They enjoyed pretending to walk on a sidewalk of sticky glue or swim in a pool of pudding.  My kiddos also like taking turns to come up with scenarios for us to act out (which I loved because I often ran out of creative ideas).  You can download the list at the link below. 

Several of the activities came from this book (which has been around for awhile) and all I have to say about it is this:  IT. IS. AWESOME.
