“Energizers are quick whole-group activities that can be done anywhere and anytime in the school day. They can be lively or calming. They can have an academic component or can be just for fun. They can be used to transition children between learning activities, as a pick-me-up during intensive lessons, as a way to keep order during times of waiting, as a focusing tool to use when students are outside the classroom, and in many other ways. Energizers can be done with students in a circle, at their desks or tables, or even while they’re waiting in a line. What a gift—joyful, purposeful, engaging activities to help ease students through the school day!”
