Go Noodle!

Our class is currently enjoying a new website called Go Noodle.  This is a free site that gives Brain Break activities between 1 and 5 minutes long that quickly get the class re energized between activities.  We have a mascot, a "classroom champ" who grows a little bit with every 10 break breaks that our class completes. 

Children need to move to learn and I have found just a couple of minutes of movement goes a long way with increased concentration and time on task, especially in the afternoon.   

Some of our favourites so far are yoga- like activities with a character called Massimo and Run Like a Kitty!

The video below is from Ed-Tech Tuesdays for teachers to learn more about Go Noodle and set up their own account.
