Go Noodle

Have you ever heard of Go Noodle? Ask your child about this program sometime and see the excitement they have when talking about it. We use this program for fun interactive brain breaks throughout the day here at Walker. Go Noodle just released some exciting news that they have partnered with On Our Sleeves, the movement for children’s mental health, to bring tools to teachers and parents to help kids through this time. As part of our partnership, they just launched an all new channel, All the Feels! It is aimed at bringing social-emotional content to elementary-aged students as part of the larger resource set focusing on mental health awareness and tools for teachers and parents. The more we can be proactive with our kids the better our support will be when they have those hard days. https://family.gonoodle.com/channels/all-the-feels


¿Alguna vez has oído hablar de Go Noodle? Pregúntele a su hijo sobre este programa en algún momento y vea la emoción que siente cuando habla de él. Usamos este programa para divertidos descansos cerebrales interactivos durante todo el día aquí en Walker. Go Noodle acaba de publicar una noticia emocionante de que se han asociado con On Our Sleeves, el movimiento para la salud mental de los niños, para llevar herramientas a los maestros y padres para ayudar a los niños en este momento. Como parte de nuestra asociación, acaban de lanzar un canal completamente nuevo, All the Feels! Su objetivo es llevar contenido socioemocional a los estudiantes de primaria como parte de un conjunto de recursos más amplio que se centra en la conciencia y las herramientas de salud mental para maestros y padres. Cuanto más seamos proactivos con nuestros hijos, mejor será nuestro apoyo cuando tengan esos días difíciles. https://family.gonoodle.com/channels/all-the-feels
