Let's Talk Tuesday: Do You GO NOODLE?

I have OFFICIALLY gone NOODLES!!


Just kidding....

But I have found a new resource to use in my classroom.



It has been a buzzin' on the teacher bloggosphere. SO my wheels started turning.....

I wondered if my kids would like it.

WHAT KID WOULDN'T?!


Hey, I have even fell in love with it.


"What is Go Noodle?," 

....says the teacher that has been hiding under a rock.

THIS (look down) is GO NOODLE!!!










*jumps into a twisting jig*


I like to call it Brain Break Heaven.

Yeah, that's what it is.

Okay so you start out with a teeny tiny monster goober.

You say monster, I say GOOBER!

Okay so they are ACTUALLY called CHAMPS.

Anyway, your class completes different warm-up, calming or 
just-because-they-are-awesome-and-cool activities...

like Hurdles, or Zumba...and fun little jigs.

or breathing exercises.


OR THE ROBOT!!!

My kiddos melt my heart.

But anyway.....

As they complete tasks, their little Goober grows...
and becomes big and strong...



JUST JOKING!!! She is circa early 90's!!

It grows like this:


And when they finish the levels, they can choose a new Goober.

Here are a few of the "growed up" Champs:


I teach two grades, so I even made it a friendly competition between both classes. So as they are switching I always hear, "Did you guys Go Noodle today?"

Here are my kiddos as they Noodle!



SO STINKIN' CUTE!!!

Now.....

You want to hear the best part?

IT IS FREE!!!


(they have a paid option, but we are enjoying the free version)


I really think my kiddos deserve a little fun after the year we have had, with switching over to Common Core Standards, new testing formats with more BCR's/Performance Tasks, and test after test....

AFTER TEST.

I hope that anyone who is not currently 
"gettin' their noodle on" will do so. 

And if you sign-up and LOVE it, like I know you will....


Okay so BEFORE you leave I have a question....


What other brain break activities are you doing in your classroom? 

Inquiring minds(me)want to know.



Okay, now click the picture (below) to head on over!



FYI: I found this little button on Google! I love it
 and would like to use it on my sidebar...

Does it belong to YOU?

Let me know so I can add in your street cred.


P.S- This is also my 1st time linking with Fourth Grade Flipper....
