How to keep fidgety elementary school children on task? Give them an in-class break to wiggle, jump, dance and just be silly. That’s what Westgate Elementary third-grade teacher Amy Jonart does daily when she lets her students follow the dance moves of videos on GoNoodle.com. The brain break helps improve performance and focus in the classroom while allowing children to stretch and move. (Photo courtesy Tanyalux Hodson, Westgate PSO liaison)
