Turn Your Brain On - Move!

The PE teacher at our school recently sent out an email with research info and an amazing image of brain activity when kids are still vs. active. It clearly shows that the brain is working more after someone gets moving! (I do think more clearly after a good workout!)

The study was called the Texas Youth Fitness Study.

To help get my kiddos moving, I use a lot of videos with pop songs and dance moves. YouTube is full of JustDance videos that the kids love!

Here's a symbaloo full of kid-friendly Just Dance videos.

Follow my "Brain Breaks" board on Pinterest for more ideas to get your kids up and moving and turning their brains on.
