I like these brain breaks as they only take 5 mins and focus upon three areas; Stretching Releasing energy Reduce stress and calming down Free interactive brain breaks for your classroom. …
A great collection of brain break activities - when you can see your class wriggling - stop for 3 mins and try one of these.
This is a simple dance that add's in a different movement each verse- good for memory too.

I am sure most people have their own set of actions to this favourite song- however I liked this song to provide extra actions to go with the story.
This is a simple dance routine to a song many students will know.
This is a favourite of mine !I quite like this format, as not too young and their actions aren't perfect so makes reluctant students more likely to join in.
This is a repetative song allowing Students (and staff !) a chance to repeat and get better. It would engage older students.
This is fairly complicated and quite action packed - would engage older students and boys particularly.
