Energizing Brian Breaks Number Spots Addition

Get your students moving!  They should get up and out of their seats every 25-30 minutes.  If you have seen their eyes growing tired, then GIVE THEM A BRAIN BREAK!  It is easy, fast and effective.  It will only take about 2 minutes of your class time and you will surely make that time up when they are refreshed and ready to go. 

Here it is.
1.  Stand Up and find a partner
2.  Here are the spot values:  right shoulder = 1, right ear = 2, nose = 3, left ear = 4 and left shoulder is 5.
3. Without talking, one person will touch two of their own number spots and the other person will have to say the numbers out oud and then add them together. 
4.  Once one person has done a few problems, the other person can give some problems. 

This brain break is great becasue it forces you to READ your partner's number spots.  You have to think of the spots in THEIR perspective.  I have students who often turn their back so as to "think" of their partners vantage point. 

There are Letter Spots and Number Spots Multiplication as Energizing Brain Breaks.
Check out the Video, it might help you visualize this Brain Break.

Don't forget that we have the new SMARTBoard Edition with Video Links as well as the new PowerPoint Edition with Video Links. Click here to check them out.
