I love, love, love using brain breaks in the classroom. Anytime you notice a lull or a lack of participation a quick brain break is a great way to get students engaged again. Brain breaks can be a variety of things from singing a song, doing 20 jumping jacks, or doing a little dance. My student teacher and I found these great Disney Just Dance Videos on YouTube. They have ones for “Under the Sea,” “Bare Necessities,” “Be Our Guest,” and more. Now, as a teacher, using YouTube videos can be a concern because you never know what ad could pop up. Our district found this great site, that you might already know about, but if you don’t I had to share. It’s called SafeShare.Tv. It is a way to show YouTube videos in the classroom in a safe way. You put the web address into the SafeShare website and it provides you with a safe link to use in the classroom – ad free. The website is www.safeshare.tv. Wonderful website and wonderful way to show some fun dance brain breaks on the Smart Board!
