Brain Breaks

Gonoodle is a great website that provides ways for kids and families to move and learn together.

Indoor Brain Breaks

  • Jumping jacks, jump rope, or other jumps. Challenge your child to do a certain number of several kinds of jumps, or to see how many jumps he can do in 60 seconds.
  • Play "keep-it-up" with a beach ball or balloon.
  • March or high-step around the house.
  • Run, skip, or grapevine down a hallway (or do a combination of moves).
  • Do push-ups, sit-ups, or planks: How about a family plank challenge?
  • Do yoga poses or stretches.
  • Bear crawl or crab walk across the room and back.
  • Have a dance party—just one or two songs.
  • Balance test: Put a paper plate on your head and walk across the room. Make it harder by adding something to the plate, like a beanbag (easy), or a ping pong ball (harder).
  • Run in place.

Outdoor Brain Breaks

  • Walk around your backyard.
  • Bike, scooter, or in-line skate.
  • Play fetch with your dog.
  • Play catch with a parent, sibling or friend.
  • Dribble a soccer ball or basketball, or shoot baskets.
  • Draw a hopscotch court and play a game.
  • Run across the yard. See how long it takes you to get from one fence to the other. Then try to beat your time.

Games/Activities to play at home:

    • Roll two dice: Add, subtract, or multiple the dice. Challenge: create a word problem with the two numbers.
    • Math War (Top-It): Using a deck of cards, flip over two cards just like the game of war. For addition, add the numbers and the highest sum wins. For subtraction, subtract the numbers and the lowest difference wins. For multiplication, multiply the numbers and the highest product wins. The person with the most cards wins.
    • Sidewalk chalk math - Go outside and practice math problems with sidewalk chalk. Challenge: time yourself and see how many problems you can solve in 5 minutes
    • Farkle (Three-digit subtraction practice) - One player at a time rolls all 6 dice. Points are recorded for certain numbers (see point card). If points are earned on the roll, players can set those dice aside and roll the remaining dice. Players only get 3 rolls on their turn, but they can choose to stop after their first or second roll. The points earned are subtracted from 1000. This number is their new total. Play continues until one player reaches a score of 0.
          • Point Card: For every 1: 10 points, For every 5: 5 points, Three 2s: 22 points, Three 3s: 33 points, Three 4s: 44 points, Three 5s: 55 points, Three 6s: 66 points, Straight (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6): 150 points, Three pairs: 50 points, Two Triplets: 250 points, Four of a kind: 100 points, Five of a kind: 200 points, Six of a kind: 300 points
    • Domino Fraction War (comparing fraction practice) - Divide the dominoes between the two players, keeping them face down. For each round, players turn over one of their dominoes and make a fraction with it. The lower number should be the numerator and the higher number should be the denominator. The person with the greater fraction keeps both dominoes in their “win” pile (not the original playing pile). If there is a tie, each player should turn over another domino. The greater fraction keeps all the dominoes. Continue playing until all the dominoes from the original pile are gone. The player with the most dominoes in their win pile wins the game.
    • Measure for dinner - Help make dinner by measuring the ingredients. How would you double the recipe?
