Our last post included a video of the class taking a movement break to get some energy out. 

Today, before writing, we needed to quiet our bodies down, so we used GoNoodle.com to "melt" our bodies.

The kids start out by "freezing" their bodies in a statue pose.

While freezing, the students are guided through scrunching up their faces, and tensing the different parts of their bodies.

Slowly, the students "melt" to the ground as they calmly breathe and relax their bodies.

We were all more relaxed and ready for writing after this 3 minute activity.

I always remind them (and hope!) that they can use these activities any time they feel like they need help settling their bodies and minds.
