Brain Breaks

If you teach young kids, you understand how much energy they have.  It makes me jealous...can I have just a bit of that energy to help me get going in the mornings?  Seriously, they have about 10x more energy than me.  While all of that energy is great, I'm sure you also know that it makes it hard for them to stay focused sometimes.  Enter...the brain break

My kiddos love when we do brain breaks.  It even helps if some of us are feeling grumpy (teacher included!).  Somehow dancing just makes the grumps float away!  I've pinned several videos on my pinterest page and loaded it on our computer desktop.  That makes it easy for the kids to pick videos, too.  A couple of our favorites are "What's That You Say" by Koo Koo Kangaroo, and "Ants in Your Pants" by Eric Herman.  Check those out and all of the other videos we use on my pinterest page!


P.S.-  Sorry for the really long blogging break!  I changed jobs (twice!) and got married, so needless to say, I've been a bit busy!  :]
