Camp GoNoodle!!

Today I'm linking up with Holly from Mrs. Ehle's Kindergarten Connections to talk about Camp GoNoodle!

If you're a teacher, you probably already know how AWESOME GoNoodle is!! I used GoNoodle in my class almost everyday to take a break and work out our wiggles (I saw "our" wiggles because I was always dancing right along with whatever brain break we were working on #noshame). 

Well now, GoNoodle has started an AWESOME program for the summer called Camp GoNoodle! This is great for parents who have their kids home and have run out of ideas of things to do! Your kiddos are sure to love it!!

Here's how it works:

First, you sign up for a FREE account HERE! Did I mention that this site is completely free?! YAY!

Every Monday, starting today, Camp GoNoodle will post five new adventures at These adventures are all about getting kids to use their imaginations, get moving, and get outside! They are fabulous and oh so fun! This week's camp theme is Friendship and here is an example of one of the activities:

Kids will also learn two new, fun camp songs every week! 

Kiddos can also earn badges for completing the week's adventures! Who doesn't love a badge?!

Now here a few of my favorite Camp GoNoodle-related things! Check it out!

Now hop on over to Camp GoNoodle and get started on the fun today!!!

Summer Update

Okay guys, I know it's been awhile since I've posted. But I can explain.

First of all, the end of the school year is hectic for everyone. But with all sorts of new testing happening in our district, I just didn't have time for anything but school! On the bright side, my kids rocked the test and I couldn't be more proud of them! We also had awards days and all the end of year stuff that happens! Busy! Oh and I had to pack up my classroom and say bye to the sweetest group of women. What an emotional wreck I was.

(Please excuse the iPhone photos and their not-so-great quality. Who even knows where my camera is)

Second, we moved, y'all! That's right! Bye Mississippi, hello Arkansas! We are loving it!! But husband had to move a month and a half before I did (I stayed to finish out the school year), so I had to get our home moved by myself. Okay, thankfully not really by myself. My mom and mother-in-law came and helped me move and get the old house cleaned. Seriously, I don't know how I would have done it without them! 7 1/2 months pregnant and moving do not mix!

Look at all those boxes!

Now, the crazy thing is, our stuff got packed on May 29th. It's not being delivered until June 23rd! Are you hearing what I'm saying?! It took a month for our stuff to get delivered to us! We moved 5 hours away! Ugh. So we've been total redneck status and making due with the furniture we have in our new, empty house (see picture below). See those fancy dining room chairs? Keepin' it classy. (Also, excuse my husband's face. I told him to make a goofy face for our goofy dining room picture.)

And lastly, I've been working my tail off getting some stuff finished up for TPT before Miss Ellie makes her debut and I don't have as much time to work. And yes, sometimes I work in bed while everyone else is sleeping. I blame the pregnancy insomnia for that one.

So now I have one month to get our house unpacked and settled before our girl shows up, so the pressure is on, y'all! Time to kick it into gear!!!

I hope your summer has been just as adventurous as ours has been so far!!
