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
Palo, palo, palo,
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
