Brain Break Wednesday: My Turn, Your Turn

This Brain Builder/ Brain Break comes from Committee for Children, the creators of Second Step. It is a very simple one that can be adapted for any level.

My Turn, Your Turn

1. The leader says “my turn” and then says or does something for the followers to repeat or respond to. (Example of basic level: leader pats head twice. Example of higher level: leader says,”Answer: what is the square root of 64?”)

2. The followers wait to repeat or answer until the leader says “your turn.” (Ex. followers pat head twice or say “8”)
