Classroom Brain Breaks for Optimal Focus and Learning

Download a Free Resource for Teachers

At Brain Balance, we see the hard work, heart, and soul teachers put into making every day a success for their students, our kids. We know that for all students, learning success involves a delicate balance between the skills of focusing on a task, blocking out distractions, and the ability to absorb and memorize academic information. There are some moments throughout the school day when kids are just unfocused.

Teachers, when you've tried redirecting and reminders and your students just can't seem to stay on task, try these tips from our Brain Balance team. With these quick, three-to-five-minute brain breaks, you can help engage your student's brains and reset their minds for better attention and academic retention. Short-term, physical exercise can actually enhance and engage both a student's attention and memory. It only takes three to five minutes to engage muscles, spike heart rate and positively impact focus and memory.
