Before revealing these activities, I think it’s important to understand why they should be used in the classroom. Some of the reasons why the activities I’ll be blogging about in the coming months are important within the classroom are outlined below (these are 3 scientific reasons to prioritise breaks at work https://open.bufferapp.com/science-taking-breaks-at-work/):
1. Breaks keep us from getting bored
2. Breaks help us retain information and make connections
3. Breaks help us re-evaluate our goals
Yes the reasons above relate to adults at work, but I think the same can be said for children at work (school). Please sign up (if you haven’t already) to receive updates and I will keep you posted when I write about my first “trick!”
You won’t want to miss it!
