What is Bookflix, Kahoot, and Gonoodle??

Your child may mention these words and I wanted to explain what exactly they are. Bookflix is a website we use for students to hear a variety of stories read. It is not a movie, but the actual book being shown. Gonoodle is a website we use for music and movement in the classroom. Sometimes we use it to get the wiggles out, and other times we use the relaxation ones for moments we need to calm down or relax. Kahoot is an online game we play as class to review our stories and skills for the week. Teams are competing to answer the questions as a review.
