PHYSICAL BIBLE BRAIN BREAKERS
These brain breaks stimulate and energize while others will quiet the children down and exercise to help their focus. They do meet different needs. Some breaks will only take seconds while others will take a couple of minutes.
There is a rule of thumb that the attention span for younger children is about one minute per year of age. This can be expanded depending on the degree of excitement and importance. Just understand that it can be a ticket for trouble if you expect younger children to have a longer attention span.
1. The lateral body movement (right hand, left leg; left hand, right leg) helps the brain to focus.
2. If the children are too rowdy, these physical brain breaks will have them settled down in no time at all.
3. Breathing techniques helps the oxygen to flow to the brain for clearer thinking.
