Since we were stuck inside, we had some fun with indoor recess. We played some of their favorites, Silent Ball, Four Corners and 7 Up, but I wanted to share some of our favorites you might not know about!
First up, a fun spelling game! It's easy peasy and can be done with any list of words or even math facts!
I'd call out a word and they'd write it out on their white board.
Then when the students wrote it down they'd sit on the floor.
Then we would say together how to spell the word. The first person who sat down got to choose any action for us to do for 10 seconds. Such as marching, playing air guitar, jumping jacks, etc.
Easy right? It's a game you can even play just to practice your words when the sun is out too!
Our second favorite thing to do is DANCE! Sure we dance to the Cupid Shuffle and the Chicken Dance. But we also love Just Dance Kid videos we find on Youtube!
Here are a few of our favorites...
You can follow my Brain Breaks board on Pinterest, I've pinned lots of fun videos and songs!
I've also spent the weekend updated my Celebrating Black History Lapbook! If you have already purchased it, be sure to go to My Purchases and download the new copy!
The new version is aligned to Common Core, includes reading selections and 7 foldables!
Check it out at my TPT Store or TN Store if you are interested! I am so excited to start it with my kiddos next month!
I'll give away two copies this week. You can enter by doing two things:
1. Leave a comment and let me know what your favorite indoor recess activity is.
2. Pin Something from my TPT Store or Blog and leave a comment telling me what you pinned.

I'll pick a winner on Wednesday.
I hope everyone who has tomorrow off has a great vacation day and if you're working I'll be thinking of you!
Have a great week!
