Blog Hop Stop #24

Welcome to blog  hop #24.  I am so glad you are here!

Primary Powers and GoNoodle have created the 
dynamic duo!  We are sharing all of our best ideas on using GoNoodle. You have landed at hop top #24. 

While teaching third grade this year at a new school, my kids switch classrooms all day long.  We provide them with transition time to get materials from their lockers, use the bathroom, get a drink of water, or just walk.  We have one of the busiest schedules, we really do!  The day goes by so rapidly you barely notice the time since you are on the go all day long.

With that being said, my students do need extra time to stretch, exercise, dance, breath, relax... and GoNoodle is here to the rescue!
We use GoNoodle during transitions (between our math, reading, spelling, and history class).  We use it to keep our bodies and minds on task and even a bit of relation before we take a test. I cannot begin to tell you how much they love it!  I have even received e-mails (the nice kind) from parents, thanking me for the extra needed brain break in their child's life.  Score! I even wrote about them on one of my graduate school papers while discussing about the brain and all the research out there about the benefits of brain breaks (hoping for an A).


Maximo is one of our favorite characters!  The kids totally love his accent and enjoy imitating him. He gets us through our breathing exercises with many wonderful smiles... and confident test takers!

GoNoodle has parent accounts so the dancing, breathing, and exercising can happen at home too!

Starting on Cyber Monday through December 8th, GoNoodle is also offering all Primary Powers readers 30% purchases from the GoNoodle Shop  Use the code POWERS30 at checkout to receive the discount PLUS a special gift from GoNoodle and Primary Powers.
In addition to the new t-shirts, tumbles, and other goodies for GoNoodling teachers, you can purchase affordable, pre-wrapped gift packs for students to bring a little GoNoodle love to your classroom this holiday. 

Don't forget to say hi to them via Facebook :)

#Thanksgiving Lapbook

Who is off this week?!  I will not rub it in too much, but I am for the first time ever.  A week off is what I need to take a deep breath and catch up with my never ending to do list.

We had a very busy day yesterday with the ophthalmologist, pediatric dentist (did you hear me say 5K braces??!!!), car salesmen, redbox movies with hubby,  and DTWS by myself.

Today I promised I would get things done, and while it is around four something, I am still in my pajamas blogging away :)

It has been months since I have sat down to finish something to post on TPT, but I did it! Finally :)


You can find this $2.00 resource HERE.  Maybe for next year? 

A few more pictures for ya...

All the printables to show what your students are #thankfulfor are included and the cutest clipart from Educlips just makes me smile.   I hope you like it!

Want a copy?  Help me by pinning this, comment with a thankful hashtag, leave your e-mail and your pin.  I will send it to you tonight!

SUPER Thankful Thread Linky

I have disappeared again.  I am sorry. I get a chance to check my IG account almost daily, but blogging has been a hard thing to get to after hours of school work.  Grad school is almost over (for this semester anyway), and I am hoping to have more time to share things with you soon. I am just thankful you have not left me. Thank you!

The super girls and I are having a Super Thankful Linky and we would love for you to join us HERE.


My students and I will be taking some time to report about things we are thankful for with our families during our school festivities next week... more on that later next week :)

For now... my bloggy friends I am SUPER thankful for..






Don't forget to join the linky party with us!
