Anybody else knee-deep in standardized testing right about now? My third and fourth graders have been giving it all they've got on our state tests for the past week +. The only thing keeping us ALL sane has been GoNoodle! Let me back up a little bit...In my classroom, we LOVE brain breaks. Some of them are super quick like a few jumping jacks or chair push-ups, but other time we will take a few minutes for a dance break, quick game, or youtube video. Spending a few minutes getting the wiggles out and getting our brains relaxed in between lessons during the day definitely pays off when I don't need to waste instructional time DURING lessons redirecting and managing behavior.
GoNoodle a part of our regular classroom routine even after state testing is over! Seriously, check it out!
Do you use brain breaks in your classroom? When do you use them? What are some of your kids' favorites?
