Brain breaks will automatically open to the current month’s calendar. 

The calendar includes CASEL competency themes for each month which will be shown at the top next to the calendar month. For example, see “Self-Management” to the right of September 2022.  

A themed subtopic will be reflected each week, which is displayed on the left.

The Brain Breaks calendar is organized by grade level: Pre-K through 2nd grade and 3rd grade through 5th grade. Simply click on the grade band on the top right to navigate between the two. 

At the bottom of the screen, you can view the previous month and upcoming month calendar. To access the previous or upcoming month, simply click on the previous or upcoming month’s name. 

Selecting any link on a desired date will generate the complete lesson for that day.  The left side will display a mini lesson plan for the activities with links and resources. Click the link or any pictured screen to launch that activity for the day. 

Exit the mini lesson plan to return to the Brain Breaks calendar.
