How I Use It
GoNoodle is a quick and easy way to incorporate brain breaks throughout the day. I usually incorporate GoNoodle right before I have my students do a lot of thinking or to give them a break after a period of teacher driven instruction.
My Take
GoNoodle is a great way to have students either become more energized or to reduce their stress by doing one of the GoNoodle activities anytime during the day. It is great to have different "brain break" activities in one place and ready to go without any prep work on my end. The activities that include direct instruction are the best ones to use since the kids just follow what is happening on the screen. This makes it easy to keep the class engaged and moving. Other options are not as well structured and it is harder to keep the students as engaged. Students really have a "buy-in" since they are able to grow and change their "creature" every time they do an activity. They know exactly how many minutes they need to get to the next level. GoNoodle is a fun way to incorporate movement into your day.
