Cyber Monday Blog Hop # 14

Hey guys and dolls, how's it going?

Welcome to stop 14 on our blog hop!!!

The gals of Primary Powers have joined forces with Go Noodle for a

If you want to start at the beginning, head over to my friend Molly's blog by clicking her button! 

Anyone who knows me can tell you that I use music in my class all day long,

for just about everything!

I use it for nap time, writing time, independent work time and transition times.

After I discovered Go Noodle, it just made it even better!!

My class just loves Go Noodle, can't you tell?

We already have almost 200 minutes worth of Go Noodling!!

When I came across Go Noodle, I thought that there had to be ways that I could use it

in the classroom, other than simply using it as a brain break. (Which I ADORE, by the way.)

I thought about it for a few weeks, and then I had an a-ha moment!

Our day is made up of constant movement, to getting and putting up morning and math journals,

getting writing folders, rotating to centers, moving down to the mat for whole group, etc.

What if I were to use Go Noodle for transitions?

I already play music anyways, why not add a visual component to it?

Our students have to learn so much, and I like to help them get the wiggles

out anytime I can, especially since it's colder and we can't go to recess!!

So now, when it's time to transition, I give the kiddos instructions,

and they know that once the task is completed, they can find their

spot on the mat, and get busy moving!!

Below you'll see a pic of one of my sweeties who made

it to the mat before the rest of his group mates, and he's ready to party!

Go Noodle is seriously my kiddos favorite time of the day, and it has

been a great help in getting the jiggles out, and then they're focused for the next activity.

It wouldn't be a Primary Powers blog hop if we didn't have something in store for you guys!
