Brain Breaks for Spanish Class

Wednesday, November 4, 2015

I am "brain break" lover! I teach young students, but it doesn't matter how old your students are, a little break to get them moving will help them tune into class. I use brain breaks a lot, but depending on the time of the day, I have noticed that they are more needed, especially with classes after lunch.

Here is a list of brain breaks for different levels.

Choco, choco, la, la
Cho, choco, te, te
Chocola, chocote,

Palo bonito
Palo, palo, palo, 
palo bonito,
palo eh,
eh, eh, ah
palo bonito, palo eh.

Hula en español: Five minute video that will get your students moving!

La Yenka: This could also be used as a fun choreography for your students to learn!
You can also use it as freeze dance by just chanting "izquierda, izquierda, derecha, derecha, adelante y atrás, 1, 2, 3" and then everyone freezes.

La Familia Sapo: Perfect to review family members while getting everyone moving

Todo el movimiento: Great to review parts of the body

El baile de la ensalada

Have fun moving in class!
