Click the picture below to start at the beginning!!!




So...here on my blog, I wanted to show you how I incorporate GoNoodle into my morning meeting! 

We start our day with a morning meeting.  We do 4 parts including a greeting, message, activity, and a share out.  I love to use GoNoodle during the activity part of our meeting.  The choices are endless!!! Here are my favorite GoNoodle activites to do during morning meeting.

1.  Any of the Zumba Kids videos.  They get the kids up and moving.  Its a super fun dancing activity to start our day!

Our favorites are happy and wipeout!!!

2.  Run with Us- These are super fun and my kiddos love them.  They love seeing real life olympic athletes help them to train for the different events.  Their favorite is the 400m hurdles.  We get a kick out of imagining we are clearing hurdles around the room!

3. Freeze It-We love this activity.  Its a way to get moving but to practice academic content as well.  The students dance dance dance until they hear freeze.  They will be given a word to read, a math fact, geography question, etc.  Its super fun!!!

4. Body Spell-I love to do this activity with the kids.  Its a great way to practice our spelling words.  You can use a preselected word list or create your own.  I usually put in our spelling words for the kids.  The students use their bodies to spell every letter in the words.
