GO noodle
I allow my students to do a go noodle video at least once a day for brain breaks or recess but there is one student who can't seem to handle it, he is always running all around or hurting other students. He is ruining it for the class and it makes me not want to give the students this activity. How to I fix this without punishing the entire class.

I would use a piece of tape to mark everyone's spot during GO noodle. Maybe having a specific marker will be a great reminder of the area he is allowed to be in. Also, set up rules and consequences for the students can be helpful. If he is aware that it is a privilege he may respect that time more.

I would have never thought about using tape to mark spots for this activity. I love that idea.

Tape is a great idea! You are getting your point across without feeling like you are just calling out one student. This is a way to approach it in a way where the problem student will likely comply because they don't realize they are the one being addressed.

If it is one student, a sit down talk with the individual would help. Let him know that his actions are going to cause the whole class to lose their privilages for the Go Noodle game. He may react that he does not want his friends/classmates to suffer, or maybe it will not phase him. I would also try when he acts up, make him sit out. He would most likely see all the other students remaining to have fun and he will want to join back in. Identify that to come back to the game, he must behave.

I would not want to punish the whole class for one student's behavior, so I would try giving him a specific job during the time you play the Go Noodle video. For example, send the student on an errand to the office just before playing the video. This will give him a break from the class and allow the other students to enjoy the video/activity.

I agree that sending him on an errand could be helpful but then he doesn't learn how to behave during the certain activity.

Setting a very direct procedure for this time will be important to allow you to apply consequences to the students, but allow the others to enjoy who are capable. Discuss appropriate procedure, and discuss what the consequences will be if unable to follow. Maybe he is just not understanding what he is supposed to be doing.

Giving assigned spaces and having consequences for leaving that space would be a great idea. Such as having to sit the activity out for that day when he starts running around. Also a good idea would be to ensure that the go noodle chosen is an activity all students are physically capable of completing. I know some of the dances are a bit advanced and when children are unable to follow the structured instruction there is more chance of acting out.

I would pull that student to the side and address my concerns to him. I would also offer incentives for good behaviors and consequences for bad behaviors. A good behavior incentive would be something like free time or extra credit or consequences would be something such as not allowing him to participate.

I believe that this student has more energy and wants more attention. I think you should pay more attention to this student during these times and maybe ask them questions to get to know them better.

I would assign spots in the classroom for each student during this time. I would tell students that if they can't stay in their spot and dance safely, they will have to stay seated for the next song.

I would have a conversation with the student alone so not to call him out in front of the class. Tell him that if he doesn't change his behavior, he will have to sit out of Go Noodle. No one wants to sit out of Go Noodle!! I would also stand near him during it, so he has a gentle reminder to behave properly.

I like the idea of making sure everyone has a designated spot. This student would work best next to the teacher. I think that starting or ending with a calming GoNoodle video could also help the student to de-escalate.

Maybe he has a disability that causes him not to be able to focus. I would contact the parents and talk to them about it and to see if he acts like that at home.

I would switch it up and do a couple of different activities for brain break or recess. Allow for some days to be an interactive or physical activity. Go noodle is great, but sometimes a new outlet may be a great way to gain attention from students. Remind student there are consequences for negative behavior and have him sit quietly in the corner if it persists.

A solution for this would be to have that one student stay seated during this no noodle time. He is not showing he can handle it and is not being appreciative of the time. The whole class should not be punished for his misbehavior. He could have the choice to participate correctly for the go noodle activity or he will receive a consequence.

I have a duct tape line that the students cant pass while using GO Noodle. If you are able to go someone else or move where you use it to have more space that would help.

I would have the student sit out during go noodle times, and explain why he is sitting out. I would also let the parent know of his behavior during this time and what you are doing to correct it.

Hmm, this can be very tricky for some teachers. First, I would sit down with the student and tell him that his behavior is unacceptable. If it doesn't get any better, I would do a parent teacher conference.
