GoNoodle Sanity Savers Linky!

I am so excited to be hosting this linky with GoNoodle!

I don’t know about you, but GoNoodle has saved my life this week with temperatures well below freezing. Most counties in our state closed on Thursday due to negative wind chills. Of course, we went to school but, needless to say, we did not make it out to recess. Three days in a row.

No recess.

I think it goes without saying that GoNoodle has been my sanity saver this week.

The idea of this linky is just fun and easy. The first Β topic has to do with brain-breaks and the rest is all about little ole you!

Don’t GoNoodle? You better click here fast to see what you’re missing!


Fav GoNoodle Brain Break: I am SO thankful for these indoor recess mash-ups. It’s like every GoNoodle brain-break all mashed in one 12-15 minute long break.

Purrrr-fect for indoor recess!

It starts out with a little warm-up.


Then, the dance party begins!

I am not kidding when I say that it is like a mini-mosh pit (in a fun..controlled Kindergarten way) when Koo Koo Kangaroo comes on. Get Yo Body Movin’ is kind of their (and by “their” I mean “me”) favorite. This one was played more than once this week because it starts out with this one.


This one isn’t my (which really…it’s all about me :-P) favorite, but the kids love it. They have to run in place and they start to sweat a little at this part.


Maximo makes an appearance AND they zumba.

I know my pictures are kind of blurry but that is because they were doing exactly what I wanted them to be doing.

Happy Place: My next sanity saver is thinking of the beach, the sun, or anyplace that doesn’t have THIS reading on their weather app.


There is a reason I live in the south!

Guilty Pleasure: The amount of time I spent on-line shopping over the break is kind of a problem. I seriously LOVE The Mint Julep and Flaunt Boutique. I’m not the only one with this guilty pleasure it seems…


Yes, we are on the same team, take selfies and we are twinning.

Keep Calm and…: I know some of you have already gotten one but I am still feeling left out!


GoNoodle is so fabulous that they are going to pick a random linker-upper (not a word but go with it) to send a bag full of goodies to!


Don’t be disappointed if you are reader and not a blogger because you can still get some GoNoodle goodies.

All you have to do is leave a comment on my blog about what your favorite GoNoodle brain breaks is! We’ll randomly select one commenter (again, not a word but let’s pretend) to receive a GoNoodle lanyard and stickers for your classroom.

To get this image, just right click and save it. Then insert in to PowerPoint and insert text boxes. Save it as a jpg. or png. and plug it right in to your post πŸ™‚

Can’t wait to read your posts!

  29. I love the Maximo brain breaks because they really calm my students down, but my students favorites are the Koo Koo ones. Preferably Pop See Ko and Get Yo Body Movin’ Love this linky! So fun!

  38. My kids LOVE ninja training! Thanks for sharing… We will have to try out the longer ones this week! And thanks for the online shopping favorites too πŸ˜‰

  39. LOVE Go Noodle! Such a lifesaver for winter indoor recess in Michigan! We love the Zumba dances!

  40. Ashley Tuthill says:

    I love GoNoodle! Pop se ko is one of my faves!

  41. Julie Parker says:

    We LOVE GoNoodle! We are on our 5th champ and about to max Squatchy Berger out. I’ve added some Harry Kindergarten to the YouTube section, so we use GoNoodle for transitions and learning songs too. KooKooKangaroo is our favorite. We had beautiful and warm weather all week, so we didn’t get to try out the indoor recess mixes yet, but our time will come. We did try some of the new brain breaks. LOVED Pop See Ko. My first graders were laughing so hard when the hot dog came out. Roller Coaster and Push the Buttons are the most requested From KooKooKangaroo. My class also loves Maximo. At the beginning of the school year it was hard for them to really try and take the yoga activities seriously, but giving out Yogi Awards and choosing a leader really helped with that. Now they ask to do yoga! Last week when we were being a little squirrelly, we stopped and did a Flow activity and it totally calmed the class down. Some of my students request the sporting events. We don’t do these every day, but when we do, I love how they bring the class together to work as a team. They encourage each other to do their best and I love hearing and seeing that. They haven’t yet figured out I control the medals either, which cracks me up, because most of them are readers now and it tells you how to control it right on the screen. Ha! I can’t say enough good things about GoNoodle. It has changed my classroom for the better. I have tried to get every teacher I know to check it out. Every one who does loves it, too. Whenever we find a new one that our class likes, we email each other to share. It’s great!

  42. sandra perez says:

    My scholars are in love with ice cream and guacamole.

  43. Jen Lillash says:

    GoNoodle is absolutely the best! The kids love taking those brain breaks to get their bodies moving, and minds ready to learn! My favorite brain break has to be KooKoo Kangaroo’s “Roller coaster!” What a fun and interactive brain break! The kids love the beat!

  44. Callie Northey says:

    My kindergarteners LOVE Pop See Ko! And I have to admit I love it too πŸ™‚ I find myself singing it to myself all day, even on the weekends!

  45. Jacque Barton says:

    We use GoNoodle almost everyday. If we don’t go outside for recess we’ll do more than two videos. For indoor recess the kids love Koo Koo Kangaroo, I think the skip counting is played the most because of the grandma part at the end. Every time we do GoNoodle we always end with Maximo to calm them down and to get refocused. Since we came back from break our routine for this has been off since I was out the last part of the week sick. But I have a feeling going into this week GoNoodle will be a huge sanity saver for me since I’m still not 100%. I love GoNoodle and most importantly my kids love it and they learn from it. I get compliments all the time from our recess aides when they’re inside that it looks like the kids are having so much fun, and that’s because they are. Thank You GoNoodle and Elizabeth for blogging about it!

  46. I LOVE GoNoodle! We were using Just Dance videos randomly found on YouTube, but GoNoodle has everything right there, completely appropriate and so much FUN!! I love that you can add your own to your favorites, too! Hip hip hooray for GoNoodle!

  47. I forgot to mention my favorite GoNoodle song! I love all the Koo Koo Kangaroos, but one of my favorites it Dinosaur Stomp!

  48. I love Go Noodle! Our principal signed us all up this year and my kids love it! We do yoga every afternoon after recess and on Friday we do Go Noodle instead! LIke you, I am a huge online boutique buyer. FIllyFlair.com is one of my favorites! and Red Dress Boutique…so many cute things and it is a plus being able to shop on your couch πŸ™‚

  49. Sara Drazkowski says:

    We LOVE Pop See Ko!!! my 5th graders have so much fun with it!

  50. Kristin Kenny says:

  52. Jillian Collura says:

    My kinders’ favorite is the Koo-Koo Kangaroo “Shake your foot”. They giggle so loud when they say “Put your booty in the middle”. They love chicken noodling as they call it =0).
