I'm a big fan of Go Noodle!
If you are not familiar with Go Noodle, it's time to learn about it!
It's a website where you can find all sorts of awesome brain break videos. The best part? It's FREE!
You can easily find Go Noodle. Just click this link HERE, or type gonoodle.com and you're there!
First thing you do is set up a class. If you've "Go Noodled" in past years, you'll need to set up a new class for your new crew this year. Name your class, and pick a champ for your group! (My class picked Bart Reynolds... they liked his mustache!)
If you've never "Go Noodled" before, go straight to Go Noodle 101! It's a great little video with samples from the most popular videos.
You'll see Maximo.
The kiddos LOVE Maximo's accent! Plus, they get some great stretching from his videos.
Plus, you'll see Koo Koo Kanga Roo!
These two guys are hysterical! They're just the right amount of nerdy to keep the kids interested and smiling. (And the teachers, too!) Plus, these are the guys that bring us Pop See Ko! That's everybody's favorite brain break video!
Besides exercise and movement videos, there are also calming videos! These are great for after recess, or just those times when the kiddos are on overload and need to clear their brains for more learning.
Airtime Space is a great way to calm down those antsy kiddos!
I plan to spend more time this year on the calming videos, to promote mindfulness!
Go Noodle is a great way to start the day, take a break during the day, or find energy to make it through the day. This will be my third year Go Noodling, and it's totally fabulous!
Plus, I can give you a discount for Go Noodle swag to share with your kiddos! HERE's the swag shop, and if you type in the code BTSwithGoNoodle, you'll get a 15% discount between now and Friday September 11th! There's some pretty cool stuff here!
