5 Ways to use Fluency & Fitness Brain Breaks
Here’s a little preview of some Fluency & Fitness in action! Visit my YouTube page here to see more videos.
2. Literacy and Math Center Tubs
One way to use Fluency & Fitness for center time, is to print out the slides and throw them in a container. When students draw an exercise card, they can do the exercise 5 times or for 5 seconds. They can then keep the card and another student can have a turn. Keep playing until all cards are gone. You can decide if you want just the 1 student to do the exercise or all of the students in that group to get up for quick brain breaks.
- Since the files are uploaded as .zip documents, you will need to download an app to unzip the folder on your iPad such as iZip. This app will extract the files from the folder, so you can open each file individually.
- Make sure you have Powerpoint downloaded on your iPad as well. You will want to open the files in Powerpoint so they show up in the correct format.
- Students can click the “play” button at the top of the Powerpoint file, to play the slideshow.
Another MEGA bundle bonus, are these exercise flashcards. Anytime throughout the day that your students seem to be getting a bit silly, you can simply hold up a card and have them stop working and do the exercise.
I hope that you have discovered some new ways to use your Fluency & Fitness brain breaks with your students. It’s always nice to be able to buy 1 product and use it multiple ways!
Due to the popularity of Fluency & Fitness, I created a subscription site for ALL of the K-2 videos. These videos are not downloadable like my previous sets, BUT you get SO much more by subscribing. No longer buy 1 skill at a time. You get access to ALL the K-2 content (over 800 videos) for a low monthly fee.
Another BONUS is that the new videos don’t need any special software, you can simply click play and you’re ready to go. The website has exclusive features such as 2x the exercises, music, animated kids, answers shown after the math facts, 2 timed versions, and exclusive skills not found anywhere else.
