Whole Brain Teaching Wednesday! WBT Blogs Part 2

         I had full intentions of writing this post yesterday as I had the evening off of work, but thanks to a wonderful thunder storm our power went off for the evening right after supper! So even though it is one day late, here is this week's Whole Brain Teaching Wednesday... Thursday post :)

     After the success of my post about Whole Brain Teaching blogs I received a ton of emails about other great WBT blogs that should be added to the list! Thats one of the GREAT things about WBT, the support from other teachers is incredible!! So without further adieu, here are some new additions to the list:
