Once a week we work on phonics and spelling word families or sight words. We warm up with GoNoodle. The children LOVE body spell in GoNoodle. This is a fabulous site with hundreds of movement videos that activate or calm down the brain and body. They include a range of videos and games from brain break dancing dancing, fun ways to use your body for academics or to calm down with breathing or yoga.
So, for our spelling time we get to practice spelling some word patterns with our bodies!
It is simple to use and allows parents or teachers to input a list of words easily for the children to spell with their bodies.
Naturally this is a big hit with the kids! This is a great site for parents too. Several children told me they have already told their parents all about it.
Check it out. This is a great way to wind down before bed, move after or before homework or just have some fun!
