I like to give my students occasional talk breaks as long as they don't behave inappropriately. For instance, I will allow them to talk as I'm handing back graded work as long as they stay in their seats and the volume is reasonable. They've been very responsible with that. However, I realized that admin may view this unfavorably as "off task behavior" during a quick walkthrough. I have my kids for about a 3 hour stretch so they need a break. Should I give them a focus task to work on as we're transitioning? I guess they could keep flashcards in their desks or play an educational video for moments like these. What are your thoughts? We do official brain breaks occasionally with GoNoodle too, but this is more about the short moments when we're passing out textbooks or papers. I'm very careful normally about protecting instructional time.
