Tips to calm students after Brain Boosts
If you are saying I want to do Brain Boosts, but it is so hard to get my students to calm down after it.
Try these tactics. Just like any subject, it takes some practice for the students to get the hang of it, especially in a high-energy group. Stay consistent and the kids will make calming down part of the routine.
Slow it down
Tone of voice
You have just brought the students back to class after doing a Brain Boost outside and they are wild. Slow down your speech, use a softer tone of voice and do a transition to get them ready for classwork.
Re-focus activity - "Come back to your chair and stay standing, lift your right knee in the air, grab hold for 5 seconds, breath slowly in and out, now switch legs"
