Go Noodle is a new website that helps teachers have easy, quick and motivated brain breaks. It has songs, dances, Zumba, and even Olympic events that feature real Olympic athletes. I really like Go Noodle because it also has calm down videos such as Airtime, which focuses on breathing, yoga, and Flow which focuses on changing the students attitudes and stress levels.
The BEST PART of Go Noodle is the motivation part. Before you begin the videos, your class chooses a Classroom Champ. As they exercise and do the videos the Classroom Champ grows and grows. When you reach Level 5 you earn a certificate that you can print off and put up in your classroom.

My classroom routine: I personally use Airtime and Flow every morning to get us ready for learning. I use the fun dancing videos during our transition periods to give us a brain break.

I really like how Go Noodle switches and adds new videos often so we get new ones to try out. Recently, they put on Gummy Bears and “What does the fox say” and my students screamed with excitement.
This is a must in every classroom! It’s fun and gets your class moving so they can focus and learn!
