Fall movement breaks for children is essential for many reasons. Kids need to take mental brain breaks and physical brain breaks.
I know that if I work on something too long, or get stuck, moving is the easiest and most effective way for me to get back on track and refocused.
The different with our children is that they need those breaks more often.
Incorporating movement with learn is essential for the classroom teacher.
So I’ve put together some fun fall movement breaks for children you can use in your class today.
Be sure to get the FREE RESOURCE!
FALL MOVEMENT BREAKS FOR CHILDREN
Fall Move and Freeze Dance is a great kids work out and a fun movement activity break for P.E., Music, Kindergarten, Preschool and First Graders.
Use this video for your indoor recess, brain break activities.
HOW TO USE THIS VIDEO
First, review the actions by pausing the video when a new action comes up, or scroll through the video and have children practice each action.
Next, tell them to BREATHE in between actions.
Challenge them to move to the beat of the music.
Review what you want them to do on FREEZE. Do you want the students to stay standing? Can they fall to the floor? Do they need to be quiet? Set your expectations before doing the activity.
Choose how long you want to do the activity. The FREEZE and FREE CHOICE are spaced throughout the video about every minute. This gives the students a chance to rest and for you to end the activity.
Finally, after the activity ask the students to share the easiest move and their hardest move with their neighbor.
This way they can self assess and learn that everyone has challenges and successes!
