GoNoodle for the Holidays!

Hi Families, I know how much of a challenge it can be to keep kids happily busy and entertained over holiday break, especially when the weather prevents playing outside! is a free website we use to stay active and wiggle-free in the classroom, and it’s also a great site to get moving at home. GoNoodle’s hundreds of movement videos get kids dancing, running, stretching, and more to burn of excess energy. GoNoodle even made a GoNoodle at Home Winter Challenge you can complete as a family to stay active over the break. Find the Winter Challenge attached, sign up for free at, and enjoy your holiday!
