    Brain Breaks at Bovey Tracey
    "The core purpose of Brain Breaks is to keep the pupils in your class in the most receptive state for learning. Exercise increases oxygen supply to the brain, releases stress and can re-gain the attention of learners. Brain breaks engage different neural circuitry in the learning process."

    Dr. Jean's Brain Breaks
    "The good news is that they'll be exercising their brains as they release stress and learn! Hint! Write these ideas on a language experience chart or on sentence strips for your pocket chart. Engage children in choosing activities and leading classmates in these songs and games."

    Mrs. Powell's Brain Breaks
    "The concept is based upon brain research proving what teachers have always known: young students have attention spans of only a few minutes and therefore need to have frequent physical stimulation and exercise as a break."

    Alite: Brain Breaks-7 Examples
    "Brain Breaks are simple exercises designed to equip the teacher with tools to manage the physiology and attention of the class. Research shows that structured physical movement can enhance our readiness for learning."
