Tried It Tuesday: Just Dance

Have you tried the Just Dance videos on YouTube? So fun! I have a Wii with these games at home, but never knew the videos were on YouTube until my very clever friend AMC from Looking From Third to Fourth told me about them! I tried these last week and needless to say, they were a huge hit! Here's a sample from my class:
 Kids catch on to these things so quickly! I only started using these videos last week and I'm already using them as a reward, transition in between subjects, brain break, a little movement, and get happy dance! (I'm not in the video...someone had to film!-ok, maybe next week!) There's dozens listed on YouTube, go check out your favorite!
Head on over to check out all the great ideas at one of my BBBs Holly's Tried It Tuesday-there's something for everyone! 


  1. I think we need to try this with the end of school coming up! Thanks

  6. Love the video of your class! That is our favorite song to do!! Thanks for the shout out. Can't wait to see the video with you dancing - maybe next week ; ). Maybe our classes could be dance buddies - like pen pals, just with music and dancing instead!!

  7. I still need to try this! Maybe tomorrow when they will be crazy anyway on the last day of school! That will be a great way to end the year! Thanks for reminding me!

  8. My students love these, too. We use them a couple times a week for brain breaks. They catch on to the movements so quickly.

  9. These videos have to be so fun and such a great way to re-energize your kids-- I'm thinking we should add these in to our "workout wednesday" videos! Thanks for the idea!

  10. I am totally trying this (more than once!) in the month we have left! My students last year were like dance stars and this year, not so much but they would love it anyway! I love to dance with them too and for some reason am not embarrassed unless another adult walks in the room! haha!! Thanks for sharing. :)

  12. Just Dance videos are indeed a blast! It's great to hear they've been a hit in your class. Using them for rewards, transitions, and Nitro Mod brain breaks sounds like a fantastic idea. Kids definitely love them! Thanks for sharing your experience and the sample video.
