I'm a big fan of the brain
Here are some ways I teach the kids to keep their brains fit:
- Exercise! Get the oxygen to the brain! We often do exercises in the classroom.
- Eat Brain Food! Sometimes I bring in some healthy snacks for the kids. (probably not fish or spinach, but maybe some carrots and berries!)
- Ease stress! These kids certainly understand what stress it! I often do some Yoga moves and breathing exercises with them.
- Listen to Music! I've got a wide variety of music to play in the classroom, from "party" music, to mellow music for concentration.
How do you help your students keep their brains fit?
