Go Noodle

We schedule body breaks into our day to help us remain focused and on task. We often have a body break in between activities. I feel that it is important for the children to know why we have body breaks, and if you ask them they will tell you that a body break helps them to get their wiggles out and to help them settle down to work.
One of our favourite ways to take a body break is with the website Go Noodle. This is a free website that you can also access at home. You set up a profile and then get to choose a silly character. As you complete movement activities you earn points and every 10 points your character grows….you can hear a pin drop in the classroom when we watch this on the projector! Every day I pick one or two students to choose our body break activity. My favourite is the Koo Koo Kangaroo songs. We might look silly… but we are helping ourselves get focused and ready to learn!
