Brain Breaks: Preschool-2nd Grade
Sometimes you don’t have time for a whole yoga lesson, but you have a few moments to fill—and if you don’t fill them, chaos will ensue.
We could all use a little more movement in our day, and yoga moves are perfect for refocusing on a task or for getting the wiggles out between classroom lessons.
Even just one pose a day is hugely beneficial to help bring calm and focus.
Brain Breaks in this workbook include:
- Animal Moves
- Action Moves
- Nature Moves
- Magical Creature Moves
Each brain break movement is easily printable on an 8x11 page. You can cut or fold it into a handy 3x5 card.
WHEN TO USE THESE MOVEMENT BREAKS:
Practice these yoga moves either calmly in the hallway while waiting for a special class or to get the wiggles out in the classroom in order to refocus on a task. These yoga ideas are designed to be a guide and can be adapted to suit your needs. They’re tailored to be flexible enough to use just one at a time and on the spur of the moment.
HOW TO USE THESE MOVEMENT BREAKS:
These brain-and-body-boosting activities are intended to take around one to five minutes, but they are meant to be flexible to suit your needs. Use the ideas as a springboard and feel free to extend the activities.
