BATON ROUGE- At Cedarcrest-Southmoor elementary school students are able to dance, sing, and learn...all at the same time!

"Go Noodle" is a program that's offered to schools in East Baton Rouge parish for free by Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital.

"It's something they look forward to," said fourth grade teacher, Jamie Devall. "It can even be a reward at the end of the day."

It's all about getting the kids up and moving during the day. It also allows them to do things like practice vocabulary.

"I think one of the most important things about teaching is engagement, and they are excited about what they are doing," said Devall. "They get to interact with each other and with the program. It's an exciting thing for them."

One of Devall's students, Kenneth Wright, says he loves the program.

"It's a fun activity we can do when we are bored, or just to get all the wiggles out," says Wright.

If you have a student, class or teacher you would like to see in the spotlight, contact News 2's Kylie Dixon at kdixon@wbrz.com or (225)336-2392.
