Brain Breaks

At the KAESP Spring Conference I attended on Monday, they talked about brain breaks in the classroom. The teachers who presented the session highly recommended GoNoodle. This sight has calm-breathing exercises, energizing exercises, and many other videos to relax or charge up your students batteries. I also included some other sights that they use in their classrooms.

They did mention the key to using the brain breaks is to have rules during the breaks. Such as, no talking and to stay in your bubble. This helps to keep them focused on the break and not on each other.

PES Spring Program

Wow!! What great performances from our 1st-4th grade students and staff. Mrs. Munyon, Mrs. Dinkel, Mrs. Dewitt, and all those that played a part in putting the "Island Time" themed program on did an outstanding job! Thanks for all your hard work!
