    Does anyone do these? I have found cute videos, but they are all on you tube. I'd rather avoid the ads. Does anyone have a kid friendly sight??

    If you haven't, try GoNoodle.com. I used it in my student teaching placements and the kids loved it. It has a lot of dance/run/get out some energy videos but it also has a lot of relaxation/deep breathing type videos too to kind of bring everyone back down if needed. We did a deep breathing video of some sort before state testing every morning. You have to sign up but it's free and no hassle. There is a paid version but I've never tried it.

    The other thing that's kind of nice about Go Noodle is that you can actually add YouTube videos that you like to your collection and then when you play them, it plays them within Go Noodle so you don't get all the other YouTube related videos etc. I've never gotten ads either although I can't swear that they never come up because I did generally use Go Noodle's content. That might depend on the video. But I pulled a few things from the Have Fun Teaching YouTube channel that the kids really liked and then everything was all in one place.

    You're kidding. This is an AWESOME feature. I actually just found some Youtube videos that I wanted to play for my kinders and I was having the toughest time trying to figure out how to play them without Youtube and the ads...thanks again! I'm so excited!!!

    I was browsing the gonoodle videos and the giant chicken guy cracks me up. I always love it when a video is appealing to the kids and amusing for the adults, as well!

    You can put any YouTube video link into safeshare.tv and it will give you a new link that doesn't have ads. I love go noodle too!

    My kids love gonooddle. Their favorite one is the roller coaster one because they get to scream.
