It is an interactive book with personal learning styles included. It also includes access to exclusive videos and MP3 files for students to use. There are special chapters for Parents and Teachers.

A RANGE OF BRAIN BREAKS TO USE IN THE CLASSROOM
Much has recently been written about the advantages of using Brain Breaks with pupils. Doing a range of activities involving physical movement at the beginning of a lesson can enhance pupils’ readiness for learning.
Brain Breaks can be used at the beginning of the lesson to energise the group and get their brains fit for learning. Also they can be dropped into a session when energy levels and concentration are flagging.
This free resource provides useful ideas for activities which will help to get students focused at the start of lessons and will re-engage them when their energy and interest begins to wane.
