Great news !
This Spring my Grade 4 class participated in a contest to help promote better learning through exercise which I called "brain-brakes" in the classroom. We did Yoga, Zumba, running, etc. while projecting the exercises on the SmartBoard from the site GoNoodle.com. When the contest for a classroom makeover was announced, I submitted an entry as a teacher sharing the kids thoughts. I am now 1 of 5 finalist of the #GoNoodleExtreme Classroom Makeover.
GoNoodle is a wonderful way of adding Brain Brakes which give students a chance to move and oxygenate their brain which, in turns, helps with focus. Our little jitterbugs get a chance to let out some energy while having fun. Please vote for me at the following link and please share the link with your friends to win this classroom makeover to give the kids space to move and learn more effectively !
Thank you kindly !
