Snap Wink is an awesome brain break. You can use it as a teacher or a student. If you are a student and need a quick pick me up in a class, all you have to do is go through these couple steps. If you are a teacher, this is a sure bet Brain Break. I've used it many times with great success. It is from the ENERGIZING BRAIN BREAKS 2 BOOK. See it at www.engagedteaching.com . Scott Miller has 50 great ideas for Brain Breaks that you can use right away. He also has them available in SMARTBoard or PowerPoint slides.
This brain break is directly from the book page 14.
Remember it is so important to give your students a little break in the middle of class. Get them up and moving with this easy Brain Break. You might be saying I don't have enough in my schedule to take out 2 minutes each day. I would say you can't afford not to have your student be active for at least 2 minutes each day. Their efficiency will sharpen immediately.
Two other awesome brain breaks from Scott's book that I use all the time are "I'm OK" and "I'm OK, You're OK" page 9 and page 10
