What is Brain Breaks?

 

HOPSports Brain Breaks® Physical Activity Solutions are web-based 2-5 minute activity breaks designed for the individual classroom setting. Without any additional planning or preparation time teachers have an instant additional resource tool to revitalize the classroom environment and activate student learning. Classroom teachers are continually asked to do more with less, and HOPSports Brain Breaks® Physical Activity Solutions help increase test scores and fulfill mandates for increased physical activity and nutrition education without compromising valuable instructional time.

HOPSports Brain Breaks® Physical Activity Solutions are a great class management tool that easily create an environment for optimal learning. 80% of schools nationwide are required to offer physical activity beyond the traditional physical education class. Since students spend more time in the classroom than anywhere else, the classroom is the perfect place to provide increased physical activity and nutrition education.

Testimonials

Brain Breaks take only 3 to 4 minutes, and after incorporating them into our classroom routine 2 or 3 times daily, I found that my students were more engaged in learning and much more focused and well behaved.
