When you click on the channel that you want, all of the Brain breaks that you can choose from will come up! This is the YouTube Channel!!! I LOVE this one because the first window is a place where you can add ANY video that you want from Youtube and it saves it for you!!! So, you NEVER have to search for it EVER again!!!
Go to Youtube and search for Just Dance Kids videos and save them all!!! They are PERFECT!!!! Here’s just an example of one!! We play this one every time we have a birthday in our class!!!
Another GENIUS thing that GoNoodle has thought of is Indoor Recess!!!!! They have put together GoNoodle mixes that last up to 15-18 minutes long!!! 18 minutes of uninterrupted brain breaks!!! Just play it and let them dance, exercise and yoga recess away!!! 😉
Another feature that GoNoodle has is their Champs!!! “What in the world are those things for????,” You might ask. Well, it’s actually pretty ingenious!!!
Just pick your favorite Champ and the kids will LOVE this little creature!!!! It will become kind of like your Class Mascot for the next couple of weeks!!!
Now, each time your class watches a brain break, your Champ earns a point! This makes for an EXCELLENT transition time!!! Because, my kids know that I will NOT close the video and show them how many points our champ has unless they are back at their seats sitting quietly!!!! (I told you! Ingenious!!!!)
Now, every time your Champ gets up to 10 points, it earns a level and it GROWS!!!!
This makes for GREAT learning!!! What is one of our Kindergarten Common Core Standards??? Ways to make 10!!!! After we see how many points our Champ has, we figure out how many more we need to get to TEN!!!
So, I made this little GoNoodle Ten Frame for the class!! I ModPodged the ten frame to a cookie sheet and then I put packing tape over the bottom portion of it so that it is like a “dry erase” board now 🙂 Then, I just laminated the coins and used a little E6000 to attach big button magnets to the backs so that my kiddos could easily manipulate them! Here’s how it turned out!!! (Gotta LOVE those little magnetic erasers from the Target Dollar Spot!!! 🙂
You can click on the little picture below to grab your very own FREE GoNoodle 10 frame and coins if you want!! 🙂
So, once your Champ finished his 4th and final level, then he is finished and you have to pick a new class Champ!
Well, I definitely want to involve my class in the selection of our next champ, so last time I just picked a couple and we all raised our hands for a class vote….but, that wasn’t good enough!! Ha!
So, I made these little survey sheets. Each sheet has 5 Champs on it. Now, I can give my class a sheet and we can survey the class and keep tallies to show our data. Then, we will graph our data to see who our winning champ is!
You can also click on the picture below to get your FREE survey sheets too! 🙂
Please let me know in the comments if these GoNoodle printables were helpful to you AND if you already GoNoodle or if you plan to start with your class on MONDAY!!! 🙂
Did I mention, it’s all FREE?!?!?
Happy GoNoodling!!!!! xoxoxo
