Give your students movement breaks with these fun, St. Patrick’s Day-themed Wiggle Breaks! People were not engineered to sit for hours at a time. It’s just not good for us. In too many classrooms today, kids are made to sit for entirely too many hours each day. It’s not good for their physical or intellectual development.

With the social distancing restrictions in place this year, teachers have had to come up with creative ways to get kids moving! I created “Wiggle Breaks” to help teachers get their kiddos moving throughout the school day. These St. Patrick’s Day Wiggle Breaks help create a healthy, happy, and relaxed classroom environment by incorporating movement breaks into your school day. These breaks are even good for the teacher!
