I LOVE GoNoodle!
I love Go Noodle! I wouldn't say it is as academic as it is fun. It does have academic content, but it can be distracting with how fun it is. I use it more for an award or brain break than I do for teaching. It is a great way to get students moving. I love how easy it is for teachers to use and how safe it is. I never have to worry that something inappropriate will pop up! If you haven't tried it yet, you need to check it out!
How I Use It
I use this product in 4 different ways.
1. I use it when I want an engaging way to teach a subject. For example, instead of counting to 100 the normal way we do it on GoNoodle because it it more engaging.
2. I use it for indoor recess. I can put it on and it gets my students' wiggles out without me worrying about anything.
3. I use it as a reward for class points.
4. If my students need a brain break, I put one on, and they can usually focus after.
