During the school day, teachers provide students with "Brain Breaks." Studies show that students who receive physical activity during the school day perform better in school. As a class, we also discuss how crossing the midline of our bodies with our arms or legs helps the left and right parts of our brains work together.
GoNoodle provides us with a variety of videos to get up, move around, and even dance. More information about GoNoodle can be found on gonoodle.com.
