My kids loooove GoNoodle. Itís easy to set up online and it keeps them active. They have so many videos/dances/songs that it never gets old!

Hide the Dolphin

Hide the dolphin (or whatever object you have on hand). Choose 3 detectives. They turn their backs while you toss the dolphin to another student in the class. That student quickly hides the dophin. The detectives look for the dolphin while the rest of the class sits quietly trying not to give away clues. Detectives may only look and cannot touch anybody or anything, so the dolphin must be "lightly" hidden.

I used to do GoNoodle for indoor recess, but the students go tired of it. So we changed it up. We only have 20 min for recess... I have 3 computers in my room, they take 5min each on the computer if they want--each computer has a timer velcro'd on it, they set it and rotate.
I also have : reusable sticker boards that have scene's on them they can use (super popular)
Jenja game
Board games, connect 4, operation, candy land
Some students just want to draw on a whiteboards or blank paper--so I have a caddy with different kinds of markers/pens/stickers
I also have two tubs of legos
Read- I have several that just want to read
Exercise--i have cards on a key ring with things like "10 jumping jacks, 10 planks, 10 toe touches,,etc"....they rotate through the cards.

I also just added a felt checker board and memory game--they love that too

I use the above suggestions also. My last class loved to make things with paper. I open my construction paper cabinet and they loved it. They were quiet and happy! The biggest problem was running out of tape (which they started bringing in) and places to store their incomplete creations (example: beyblade arenas made from paper, the Titanic, etc.) They were so creative. I also had water color paints,Charades, pictionary, modeling clay, and students could also bring their own toys with permission.
