This video is worth a few minutes of your time.
Do you struggle to get young kiddos attention and keep it?
Does management seem difficult in the short amount of time you see the students?
Look into Whole Brain Teaching. I am! I am happy to say I am embarking on a journey to research and try to implement whole brain teaching. My management plan is going great, however, I am still looking for ways to constantly engage students and I feel my old standard call and responses are starting to fade. Kids are becoming immune to them. Maybe it’s because I am teaching from a chair? Not sure…However, this method, I think, has a lot of great ideas and can’t wait to try some of them and keep you in the loop as I do.
Start by watching this video of whole brain teaching in action in a 1st grade classroom and tell me what your initial response is- Anyone else tried whole brain teaching? Thoughts?
The Teaching Palette also posted about whole brain teaching awhile back right here. More great examples of this concept!
