BRAIN BREAKS

Brain Breaks have become an integral way of helping students to transition from one type of learning activity to another.  It might be easy to dismiss Brain Breaks as being non-essential to classroom learning and student progress, but there is now a wealth of research that informs us that Brain Breaks make a difference for students academically, behaviourally and emotionally.
