As any primary teacher knows, it is important to get your class up and moving often. I love ‘Go Noodle’ but I am always looking for brain breaks in Spanish to do with my bilingual students. Most of these will work with a variety of age groups— though some are geared at younger learners.
Try a few out and figure out which are your student’s favorites. My students love ‘Soy una serpeinte’ and ‘Baila Baila’
Here is a list of songs and dances that your students might like to do as a brain break in your bilingual classroom. Many have fun dances and movements to gets your kids out of their seats and up on their feet moving.
These would also be great to do when there is indoor recess, as an incentive or you just need to get the wiggles out of your kids.

4. La cumbia del monstruo de la laguna
