If you have been one of my workshops in the last few years, you know I am all about movement, brain breaks and active learning. One of my secret weapons for promoting this work? GoNoodle! I talk about it so much that some people ask me if I work for the company! (I don’t.)
There many great apps, programs, and websites out there to promote movement in the classroom so it is hard to choose a favorite, but GoNoodle seems to be the one that educators (especially those in elementary schools) cannot live without.
GoNoodle is free, but if you want to take your activities up a notch and bring a little novelty into the classroom, an enhanced version can be purchased for $99.00/year. I use the enhanced option because it has more options connected to curriculum (e.g., vocabulary dances/moves) and because I think the choices are more varied if you are teaching in the upper elementary grades.
Want to look into GoNoodle for the entire school or district? The website gives a phone number you can call for group discounts, so this may be an option to explore for administrators, school board members or PTO parents.
