You Can Start Using WBT by Monday!

Friday is finally here and Friday the 13th at that. I won't sugarcoat it, we know that Fridays can sometimes come with some management concerns. Your students are ready for the weekend and that means that it can be easier for them to get off-task and sometimes this can snowball into even larger issues. When I was student teaching, Fridays also meant assemblies, sports tournaments, hockey games, etc and sometimes it could be so challenging to keep everyone on task and focused in the classroom!

With this in mind, I want to share with you a great new resource from the Whole Brain Teaching team, the "WBT QuickStart" FREE E-BOOK download. This e-book covers the basics of whole brain teaching quickly and easily! It includes information on the whole brain teaching strategies "Class-Yes", "Teach-Ok", and the "Scoreboard", as well as additional resources and tips. I used all of these strategies (and more) in my classroom and they worked so well. Your students are constantly engaged, which means fewer opportunities to get off-task which means they are learning more and you are not as stressed. :)

    To access the "WBT QuickStart", and many other e-books, visit the Whole Brain Teaching website and click on Free Ebooks on the menu at the top of the screen. You may be asked to sign-up (I can't remember, I've been signed up for a while) but it is definitely worth it! You will find the "QuickStart Guide" as the second e-book on the list.
    I challenge you to download this resource and try to implement even just one of the strategies into your classroom this upcoming Monday. Good luck!

* A big thanks to everyone on the WBT team for putting out these free resources for teachers, you guys rock!
