Day 10 – Brain Breaks

Today I’m sharing something we do in the classroom for indoor recess or a break.  Since I teach in the computer lab, students just come to me for 30-50 minutes from their regular classrooms, so I don’t really have recess time.  However, on days when they are needing a break from Standardized testing, or before a holiday, I like to “assign” them a selection of themed games to play. 

For example, around Christmas I find a few fun Christmas themed puzzle games and put the links to those games on my website (I have a wiki at where students can go to find their activities and links they are working on that day in class). Then I let them choose which games they want to explore.  This way, I know they are safe, but they are still getting to have some fun.
