"Missing Go Noodle would be horrible!"

This morning I had a conversation with a student of mine regarding our daily schedule. It is a Monday morning and I forgot to change a specific part of the daily schedule for the day.  If I ever doubted that doing movement breaks, calming yoga, and dancing were a waste of time in my room, this proved that it is loved and necessary!

Student:  Mrs. Moore, why does our schedule say guidance and then library?
Me:  Oops!  I forgot to move guidance.  That was from Friday.
Student:  Oh good!  Because then we wouldn't be able to do Go Noodle today.
Me: Would that be a bad thing?
Student:  It would be a horrible thing!  I love doing Go Noodle!

Sometimes, it's the little things that make a big impact on our students.


  1. Lori, I completely agree that we need to get kids moving more in the classroom. I haven't heard of Go Noodle. Would it be appropriate for third graders? During inside recesses, my students love to play Just Dance on the SMART Board. I love that they choose to get their energy out instead of playing on Chromebooks. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Sometimes we never know those little things that kids love the most!
