This is AWESOME!!

I know you have all heard about whole brain teaching. We all know that movement and reinforcement are super duper important in the classroom. I have been looking for more and more ways I can incorporate  movement, song, and dance into my everyday teaching. I stumbled onto Teaching happily Ever After and she has an awesome post complete with videos on WBT (whole brain teaching). The vidoes are too cool. I don't know about you girls but I'm a visual learner. I really need to see/hear/etc. a concept in action really grasp it. Hence my understanding it's importance for my students. Hop on over to Teaching Happily Ever After and check this post out!!

When you are done there click on over to the official WBT website and get signed up!! It is free and there are tons of resources and free downloads to check out! Just peak at one of the videos and then tell me what you think!! 

How many of you do something like this in your room already?? 

I do some of this but not exactly like they do. I've been working song and dance in but I love the way these kids are engaged and how they are reinforcing what they are learning.

I LOVE WBT!!! I've been using it for less than a year, I plan to implement it more this year!
Thanks, Nancy

I'm SO glad you are using this! You will LOVE it and your students will love it even more.
Thanks for the shout out- I got really excited when I was scrolling down Google Reader and I saw your post.

I went to their conference with some teachers from my school & we all started it last year. I LOVE it! The videos online really help, but what kept me motivated the most was that the group of us (about 7 teachers) formed a little WBT-support group & met once a month to discuss what was working for us & how we could get better. Hopefully you have someone else to try it out with you, but at least you know you have bloggy-friends to support you!

Hi Julie! I don't teach in MI. I am driving up from Illinois. I have never attended any of the sisters conferences before and I am so excited. We hired a new teacher who will be joining me at the conference as well. I would love to chat about how you implement D5 and CAFE in third.

Thanks for adding me to your sqworl list, I started mine last night. Looking forward to sharing ideas!

The 5th grade team in my building participates in Whole Brain Teaching. I think I need to do more research in order to make it work.

Great blog!
