Brain break balloons

So many of the audiences in my workshops love using brain breaks (and so do I). I have shared several posts highlighting different types of breaks, but I have never shared one on brain break displays. Until now! Today’s featured idea from Teaching Spanish with Comprehensible Input involves housing slips of paper inside balloons. When students need a break, just pop a balloon and read the “surprise” suggestion. While I would not use this in a classroom with students with auditory sensitivity, I think it would work well for most groups. Younger students would love the carnival-like excitement and I suspect older students would be more drawn to the novelty and fun of the activity than they might want to admit.
