If you are still teaching in the traditional, "sit down, be quiet, don't move", method it is time to let it go!
Research has proven that, just like adults, our kids need to move, young or old. The fact that we, as adults, don't want to sit in one place for hours on end, should give us a clue that we shouldn't do that to our students.
This year, I used part of the money from my iEducateDE Honoree money,(Thanks @RodelDE), to purchase a standing desk. (Those things are expensive!) But, I believe it will be worth it!
So you think, "What to do? What to do?" "Stand up and stretch", can get pretty boring. Try GoNoodle! Once you use it, you will be hooked for life, or, at least, as long as you teach.:)
Check out the 5 minute presentation below to see how you can bring GoNoodle into your classroom this year. You won't regret it! Pop Se Ko, Pop Pop Se Ko!
