GoNoOdle is a great site offering free brains breaks for the classroom. All students come to class but not with the same home experiences. Some have had plenty of rest and plenty of food, some have not; some come to school ready to use their energy to learn, some come ready to use their energy for anything but learning; and there are some who come to school with no energy at all…this is where GoNoOdle comes to the rescue. GoNoOdle is a great site offering videos lasting anywhere from one and a half minutes to 7 minutes, promoting physical activity that can be done in the classroom.
GoNoOdle is kid friendly. The look and feel appeals the students in your classroom. Teachers set up their class in GoNoOdle and choose a silly “champ” or mascot (like the one below) to encourage your students to get up and move.
