2nd Grade Students Show Off Their Moves

2nd Grade Students Show Off Their Moves

Wednesday, February 7, 2018

Students in three 2nd grade classrooms were excited to show off their moves to some special visitors on November 8th, 2017.  Visitors from GoNoodle and Children’s Hospital visited Norris Elementary to talk to students and teachers about their use of GoNoodle Plus in the classroom.  

Teachers utilize GoNoodle in the classroom for “brain break” activities along with extension activities for classroom content.  GoNoodle Plus offers many videos and activities that can tie into the curriculum while also allowing students to move or practice mindfulness.

GoNoodle Plus is provided to schools in Lancaster county for free because of the contribution of Children’s Hospital and Kohl’s Cares.  While the visitors were on campus they recorded some video to use in a promotional video for GoNoodle Plus.  

Take a moment to view the promotional video highlighting some of our Norris students and staff.
