This is a version of the blog post that I originally wrote for the GoNoodle Blog
Teachers are superheroes. No matter what pressures or new initiatives are thrown their way, they always give the children in their care the best quality education that they can. Just when you thought that there wasn’t a spare minute in the day, all of a sudden, you find yourself having to squeeze something else in!
What if this “something else” was GoNoodle? Teachers all over the world love using GoNoodle each day to get the wiggles out and get the children in their classrooms moving, stretching, reflecting and learning. But there are so many teachers out there that don’t know about GoNoodle. For many of us, this is the start of a new school year and therefore the perfect opportunity to share GoNoodle with our colleagues.
Here are my top 3 tips for sharing GoNoodle with your colleagues:
1. “Do you GoNoodle?”
You are GoNoodle’s greatest advertisement. If you GoNoodle with your class, people will notice and very soon people will hear about your milkshakes with Koo Koo Kangaroo, your stretching with Maximo and your hip hop dancing with Blazer Fresh. Others will love to get moving too and before long, everyone will be asking ‘Do you GoNoodle?’
2. “I use this free tool…”
Teachers will do anything for freebies. Tell your colleagues about a free resource you use that has revolutionised your classroom and that helps every child in your class to learn better. Invite them along to a GoNoodle introduction session in your classroom and show them how much fun it can be! If you’re feeling very generous, you might even entice them in with some GoNoodle stationery. Everyone knows that teachers love stationery!
3. “In my brother’s class…”
Some children in your class probably have siblings in other classes. GoNoodle can be used anywhere, including at home. Print off the GoNoodle At Home letter and send it home with your children. They’ll love sharing it with their parents and siblings, who in turn will ask other teachers if they can GoNoodle too!
If you try these out, let us know how you get on. Perhaps you have some other tips? We’d love you to share them in the GoNoodle Community on Facebook.
