What is a sensory motor break?
A sensory motor break is a short/quick break from the current task that provides an opportunity for one to move and awaken or reorganize the sensory system to improve a student’s focus and attention in order to maximize learning.
Sensory motor breaks can be integrated into a daily classroom routine or can be used spontaneously.
Check out our Quick and Easy for activities to try with your students at their table/desk, while standing or when moving from place to place.
Use the 5-10 minute Classroom Sensory-Motor Breaks for planned break times throughout the day.
