Do You Gonoodle?!

How are you? I hope you are resting and relaxing! I thought I would just blog about one of my very favorite sites to use in my classroom!!!!

I love Gonoodle!  I know many use it just to get the wiggles out of their kids but it is so much more!

I love to teach ELA, Social Studies and Science using Blazer Fresh!! Their videos are both entertaining and educational! From Don’t Read Like A Robot to Road Trippin USA, BlazerFresh and Gonoodle provide our students with a tool to increase their skills and love for these subjects!!!!! They also get to show off their fresh dance moves!!


Another great part of Gonoodle that focuses on academics as well is Gonoodle Plus!

This is a paid section but well worth the 10 dollars a month! You are able to create your own questions about anything you are learning and want to review or reinforce! The videos and games in Gonoodle Plus take your questions and include them in the videos! Through movement, your kids learn the skills and review the important concepts!! They love this and they learn without knowing they learn which makes it even better! Who doesn’t want to have fun at school!!!

Another awesome section in Gonoodle is Moosetube!!!!

My kiddos and I absolutely love this channel!!! The moose cracks us up!!! The songs are fun, the dances are silly and the experience is memorable!!! Our absolute favorite is......

But I use it in my room more then just movement videos!! I take the champs and I display them on the smartboard! My kiddos then will write adjectives to describe them. Then they would take their champ and write a narrative story about them!

Here is a picture I would display! 

For math, my kiddos will do math Word problems and solve them using counters I made from the champ clip art. We also would work on more or less when or champ goes into the transmorgifer! 

Then finally there is the Gonoodle shop!!!!

Your stop for all of your Gonoodle gear!! I love their products!! Lanyards, stickers and T-shirt’s! Oh my!!!!

 So if you are are a user of Gonoodle yay!! If you are new to Gonoodle then welcome! If you haven’t tried it, what are you waiting for!! It is free for teachers! Click the picture below to create your account and start using this amazing tool in your classroom!!!
