GoNoodle Excitement!
We have been using GoNoodle in every classroom and in the gym as an opportunity to give our students more physical activity. GoNoodle has a huge variety of activities and allows the teacher to choose the intensity level needed. GoNoodle has been a great way to give students a quick spurt of physical activity in their day. Teachers are utilizing it daily and really enjoying it for indoor recess on days the weather keeps them inside. These extra movement opportunities help keep students focused throughout the long academic day. It also improves academic performance, material retention, reduces behavioral issues in the classroom, and builds a better classroom community. The benefits of physical activity on learning are so great. GoNoodle provides teachers with an interactive way to get students moving and learning. As a school this year, we have focused on making time for movement in the classroom throughout the day.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The GoNoodle program was presented to teachers at a Professional Development and this helped teachers understand and utilize it. The teachers really loved this program and decided to make time for it. The students love the extra movement and adults have really seen the benefits.
