For every brain break we take, our class earns points towards our champ. After every 10 points, our champ grows stronger. Once our champ is maxed out, we get to pick a new one! This is Little Rufus, our current champ.
You can sign up for a free account to use at home by going to www.gonoodle.com. We love to use these brain breaks during indoor recess, Fun Friday, and celebrations.
You may have heard your child talk about Go Noodle throughout our first weeks of school. Go Noodle is an online channel of brain breaks that we use often in our classroom. Research shows that incorporating short breaks that allow movement increases student focus and academic gains. Because our recess times are limited to lunch and the end of the day, we use Go Noodle to take these short breaks.
