Once it’s winter and it becomes too cold to head outside for recess, what do you do to keep your kids active? Indoor recess tends to be noisy and often leads to a mess. Teachers dread it, especially when kids are given no outlet for excess energy! In our rooms we have found a way to solve this problem…the Just Dance video game series! With Just Dance 4 out now, it might make a great Christmas gift for your class. Yes, it does require bribing our boys to let us take our Wiis to school, but once you get them to agree – it is worth it. We connect ours to our Smartboards which adds an extra WOW factor! The kids have learned to love these indoor recess days more than outdoor recess. Because the Just Dance games contain such a wide range of songs, you will definitely find a song or two that will interest your kids. Just to be safe – always make sure you preview the songs you are going to play during recess. Depending on the age of your students, there are songs that are not age appropriate. (If you are worried, there is always a Just Dance Kids version!)
The bonus to buying this game for indoor recess? You will LOVE it! Have you tried the other Just Dance games? They give you a real workout! Our neighborhood rang in the New Year with a Just Dance 3 party – this year’s will be a Just Dance 4 party! Here’s a little evidence of the fun we had…
