what is Gonoodle?

GoNoodle is a free website that gives teachers a library of brain break and activity videos to use in their classrooms. The short videos are two to ten minutes in length. They are geared towards students in kindergarten through sixth grade, however, many teachers of older students have found that their students love the dance videos.

What are Champs?

Champs are the primary motivation system in GoNoodle. Every time you play an activity with your students, you help grow your Champ. When you grow a Champ completely, you get to choose a new one to grow.

You'll grow your champ every 10 activities you play. Your progress meter will grow each time you play an activity. When your progress meter fills up, you'll see your Champ grow!

Each Champ grows 4 times. When you've grown a Champ all 4 times, you earn an award you can print and hang in your classroom or give to your students. (The award can be viewed right away; it's also emailed to you so you can print it later.) You can then choose a new Champ to grow, or replay one you've grown previously.

Tips for Using Champs:

  • When creating a new class, involve your students in the process of choosing their first Champ.
  • Your Champ will say something different each time you visit GoNoodle. Be sure to read the greeting with the class.


Can I change my Champ?
At this time, no. To change your Champ, you should either finish growing it, or create a new class.

What are minutes in GoNoodle?

GoNoodle tracks your minutes of physical activity to help students become aware of how long they are active each day. This aligns with the CDC's recommendation that kids get 60 minutes of physical activity each day. Each time you play an activity, we’ll let you know how many minutes you earned, and your total minutes are displayed below your class name.

Email

Join the GoNoodle email list to receive periodic notification of new videos, upcoming events and tips and tricks. Here is an example of an email that was sent prior to state testing:


I know testing season can be a really stressful time for both you and your students, so I’d love to suggest a few ways to use GoNoodle to make things a little easier. Check out my recommendations below.


  • Start the morning off with Flow: These short videos will help your students reflect and set positive intentions for the day ahead! (Try “Swirling”... it’s my favorite!)

  • Turn your classroom into a game show with Think On Your Feet! Students will participate in a fast-paced quiz show incorporating a variety of simple exercises with trivia questions. You can add your own questions for a totally personalized trivia experience, or choose from existing topics, like Geography, Dates, Music, People, and more!

  • Let your kids know that you’re their biggest Cheerleader in the midst of testing and beyond! This hit song will leave your class feeling confident and ready to test their best.


Let me know what you think!


Warmly,
