Has your class tried GoNoodle yet? GoNoodle gives students the opportunity to take different kinds of brain breaks throughout the school day.
Last week I jumped on board and just like everyone else is saying my kids are o.b.s.e.s.s.e.d. They love it-they literally cheer when they see me click on it from my bookmark bar BUT then they instantly get quiet because they know I will let a quiet student choose our kind of brain break.
Once creating an account you will choose a monster (or your class will.) Once you have chosen your monster you are ready to go!
Each time you log in-your monster has a funny tidbit or a random piece of information for you. The kids love reading it! The kids can see how many minutes they have spent on brain breaks (mine class was at 17 at the end of last week) and how many minutes it will take to level up (we have 13 minutes left.) When you level up your monster gets bigger and develops a little more. We started with a more of a “blob” of a monster…but now after leveling up he has arms, legs, and is much bigger!
