Move It With Brain Breaks Music Videos {FREEBIE}

If you're like me, you'd like one place with all your fun music and movement videos at your fingertips.  And it'd be great if those videos were in a safe format so that annoying content wasn't displayed before or after your video played.

I took the videos that many of my colleagues use on a regular basis and made a Symbaloo (a really cool visual bookmarking tool that helps people keep their favorite links in order.) First, I converted each video into a link on SafeShare.tv - a wonderful site that generates a safe link for YouTube videos.  It removes all the yucky stuff you don't want.  You might have one ad pop up at the bottom of the video right when you hit play, but that's about it.  No more questionable content on the sides and nothing comes up when the video ends.  Woo hoo!

So, here it is!



When I find engaging videos, I add them to my Symbaloo which updates automatically.  If you have a favorite that you'd like to suggest I include, just leave me a comment and I'll check it out.  (My Symbaloo was updated in September '14 to include new videos, GoNoodle and many Kid President videos.)

Enjoy!

Thanks for the info - I hate when inappropriate things pop up on youtube in front of my students! I have just been putting videos I use onto a pinterest board - think I may have to change over,

This is a great resource, AND I learned about SafeShare.tv. It is a wonderful site! A few years back I had a really awkward experience with a Victoria Secret's ad. I rushed to cover the computer monitor... forgetting it was on a huge screen in the front of the room via the projector :)
