FEELING STRESSED

TEACHING V-8 MOMENTS

BEHAVIOR 101

Christmas and Winter themed Break Break + FREE party kit

Are you students restless, having trouble focusing, and paying attention? Try to include more brain breaks throughout your day. A few minutes here and there can make a huge difference.
By this time of the year, you may want to try some new brain breaks.  This also works well as an inside recess activity.

Dollar Tree has small Christmas and winter theme pillows like the ones in the tub in the picture.  You can put your students in small groups (the number of holiday pillows) or use one holiday pillow with your entire class.
Use the pillow to play "hot potato".  To play the game:
  • Students sit in a circle or circles
  • One person begins the game holding a pillow
  • Music is played - holiday music will make it more fun
  • Students pass the pillow to the person on the right, each person continues passing the pillow until the music stops.
  • The person holding the pillow when the music stops is out of the game.
  • That person out of the game hands the pillow to the person on his/her right and the music begins again.
  • Continue until there is only one person who is the winner.
You can train a student to be the person in charge of the music.
Do you have students that do not celebrate holidays this year?  No problem, Dollar Tree has a snowman pillow.  
This Brain Break activity can be used for inside recess or at holiday parties.  I have a FREE winter party kit.  Click on the picture below if you would like to check out all of the ideas and get a FREE copy.
