Do you GoNoodle?

If you don't, you need to check it out! It is a must in my classroom. I don't know how I ever taught without it! GoNoodle is great for a brain break. The kids are up, they are moving, and everyone is happy.

I am linking up with other GoNoodle bloggers for the GoNoodle Blogger Blitz to give you a glimpse of how we use GoNoodle in the classroom. Check out everyones posts for fun giveaways too!

My FAV-O-RITE (I am saying this just like Eric Litwin singing the song to Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons) way to use GoNoodle is with the Scoreboard from Whole Brain Teaching.  It is easy and so motivating. My scoreboard is this simple whiteboard (see picture below).  Kids get points by following the rules (the happy face) and the teacher earns points when they don't (sad face). Neither kids nor teacher can be up more than three points on each other. At the end of the day (or in the middle at the beginning of the year), we calculate the difference in points and the kids earn "GoNoodles" for each extra point they have.

We also love using GoNoodle during Morning Meeting.  The handshakes from the Koo Koo Kangaroo channel are perfect for our greeting!

Now for a little fun!  Between September 4th-11th the GoNoodle Shop is 15% off with the code BTSwithGoNoodle.  I may have to get some champ stickers and temporary tattoos for my students! They would be so excited!

And last but certainly not least, a giveaway! I am giving away Eraselets from the GoNoodle Shop. They are bracelets and erasers in one. No more erasers rolling around the classroom! Leave a comment and let me know how you use GoNoodle in your class and I will pick a winner at the end of next week!
Happy GoNoodling!!
