Camp GoNoodle!!

I am loving this sweet summertime....are you?  I hope that you are taking some time for yourself to just relax and enjoy with your families. 

Moms out there know though that as much as we love to spend time with our families during the summer sometimes our own kiddos can get a little restless.  At least, I hope I am not the only one who this happens to.  

The problem at our house lately has been this darn weather.  It is has been raining a ton which makes my kids even more restless and more likely to argue with each other.  

I have the perfect solution........

CAMP  GONOODLE!


Camp GoNoodle is a free online program for kids to stay active and be creative this summer!  If you already know and love GoNoodle for the classroom, you'll love Camp GoNoodle -- a summer extension of the GoNoodle experience kids love at school.

If this is your first time hearing of GoNoodle then Camp GoNoodle is a great introduction that you can do with your whole family!  Your kids will flip for this!

Here's How It Works:
Head to GoNoodle "camp."  Each Monday starting June 29, a new set of five adventures will appear at campgonoodle.com.  

Go on new adventures each and every week!  Each adventure uses GoNoodle.com's active videos and games for inspiration, and challenges kids to use their imaginations, get moving, and be outside.  Just picture its.....building your own DIY jetpack, creating an obstacle course race, or making sushi with things you already have at home.  

Sing along!  Each week includes two brand new camp songs to inspire creativity and movement.  (Maybe now PopSeeKo won't always be stuck in my head ;)

Connect with fellow campers!  Share your adventures using the #campgonoodle hashtag to join the camp commenty.  

Each week, Campers of the Week are recognized as all-stars and earn exclusive Camp GoNoodle prizes.  

Earn badges!  Complete each week of adventure by printing the weekly badge to hang up, loud and proud.  

There will be 4 weeks of camp and each week will have it's own theme!  (I love a good theme don't you?)


All you need for Camp is.....

a free GoNoodle account

a device with internet access (computer, chromebook, iPad, smart phone, etc.)

a family ready for adventure

(A family that plays together....stays together)

Ready to Register for Camp?

Go to campgonoodle.com on Monday (June 29th) and let the fun begin!

NOTE:  If you are a teacher who already has a teacher/school GoNoodle account, you will need to go to this link to sign up to receive Camp GoNoodle emails:

Makeover Madness

I am sure by now you have heard about the TpT Seller Challenge hosted by these lovely ladies.






I decided to join in the fun.  Unfortunately, with taking a very difficult grad class, I wasn't able to fully makeover this product.  Just gave it a facelift.  :)

This farm unit is the first "unit" that I ever made for TpT and it needed some major help.  You can click on the picture to see the product on TpT.


I plan on adding a lot more activities to unit as soon as my grad class is over and before school starts. Once I do, the price will go up so grab this now before the price increases.

End of the Year Gift Idea

For the past four years, I have given out the exact same gift at the end of the year.  This year I needed to change it up a bit.

(If you would like to see what I had previously done click here)

This year I decided to give each of my students a pair of sunglasses and a glow bracelet.  Then I added a tag that said "Your future is so bright!"


I picked up the sunglasses and glow bracelets at Walmart.  It was inexpensive, easy, and the students LOVED it!  If you would like to download the tags, just click on the image below.



What do you give for end of the year gifts?  Sound off in the comments below!
