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!
