Go Noodle!

I really want to share a tool I use in my classroom called, “Go Noodle!”  It is an amazing resource for brain breaks during the day.  Activities will help energize, focus and calm your students so that they are ready to learn.  The kids love Yoga with Maximo and energizing Kid Zumba!  One of the calming activities is called, “Airtime.  In “Airtime” kids breath in and out as a bubble travels from city to city across the United States.  It is a great combination of technology and movement!

Webcams!

Technology helps us connect to the world.  Educational live Webcams give us the opportunity to travel around the world.  Our favorite live webcams we love to check out are at the San Diego Zoo.  They have live webcams of Polar bears, Apes, Elephants and more.  It is in California (and is live) so it is best to check out the animals after 11:00am.   See what other live educational webcams you can find online.  Please let me know if you find any good ones out there!

Happy Summer!

Be sure to checkout all of the fun technology activities we have listed under each grade level on our website, elementarytech.net.

I do love to get kids excited about technology, but I also like to talk to students about the importance of balance.  Have fun this Summer as you explore activities online with your family, but please take the time to get outside and play!
