Unless you’ve been living under a rock, chances are you’ve heard of Go Noodle. 😉 It’s a fun, interactive way to get students up and moving in your classroom. We all know that an awake brain is a brain that’s ready to learn, and Go Noodle can definitely help with that. I’m teaming up with a variety of Bloggers to share lots of ways you can use Go Noodle this school year, plus each one of us is giving away Go Noodle swag too, yay!
I wrote a full review last year when Go Noodle was new, so I’ll skip all the details and share the results I’ve seen. My absolute favorite way to use Go Noodle is during transitions. After we switch gears from specials to lunch to recess to math groups and then back to home room, it’s been a loooong time out of our classroom. The students have been mixed and matched for hours and it’s like they haven’t seen each other for days when we get back together. Having a quick, fun activity waiting for them when they hit my classroom made all the difference in getting us back on track to finish the day strong. I mean… look at them! It’s not often that you see everyone engaged and all on the same page. Priceless.
Even though that’s priceless, the good news is that Go Noodle won’t break your teacher budget. There are lots of free options to get you started. If you want to visit the Go Noodle shop, use coupon code BTSwithGoNoodle to take 15% off this week only. You can grab lots of fun Go Noodle school supplies to pump up your class. I would sometimes have students compete to see who could most accurately follow the directions on the screen and reward the table, girls, boys, etc. with a treat. You have the chance to win this cute pencil pouch here on my blog.
