My Favorite Things in January

Wow- I can't believe it's been over a week since I last posted! It has been a crazy week- we had a very snowy non-snow day on Tuesday and yesterday and today have both been delayed due to cold, so it's definitely been interesting.

I am very excited for the new linky party that Teaching Trio has started- My Favorite Things!

This week I am posting 3 of my favorite things in the category of GoNoodle videos!!!

If you have not yet checked out GoNoodle and its amazing brain break videos- you HAVE to right now!!

 1) Koo Koo Kangaroo videos are hands down my all-time favorite thing ever this year! Every video they come out with is unique and fun and totally silly! My kids LOVE this one- where they get to "ride a rollercoaster" and SCREAM at the big drops! Click the picture to access the video.
 2) Zumba Kids rocks! This song has been popular since my first year of teaching- and it's still going strong! Definitely check it out if you need a 5 minute movement break! Click on the picture to access the video.

3) These Run with US videos allow kids to do running and jumping exercises right in your classroom! They are great for kids who have been sitting a lot and need to get up and do something quickly. There are also different levels for you to compete at- work up to the hardest ones! Click on the picture to access the video.

I hope you get as pumped about GoNoodle as I have!! Have fun!!

  1. My students love GoNoodle too! They ask to do Dino Stomp a lot as well as the Run With Us videos. They beg to do just one more - every time.

  2. Have you seen the recess ones they just released? They are between 20-25 minutes and they are a smorgasbord of activities designed to get our kiddos moving during inside recess. We had -20 degree weather here today so we used one and my kiddos loved it! Thanks for sharing!!

  3. My class love Go Noodle but I was traumatised by the noise when I played Rollercoaster without pre-watching it first!

  5. Molly,

    Thanks for the GoNoodle suggestions! I haven't delved into GoNoodle as much as I would have liked but this will certainly get me started. Thanks again!
