Welcome and Introduction

Welcome to my Whole Brain Teaching blog.  I have just finished my 8th year of teaching at the intermediate (3-4-5) level.  Currenly I teach 4th Grade math and science and I discovered Whole Brain Teaching in December 2010.  I started using Class-Yes, Teach-Okay, and the first two levels of the scoreboard because I had an extremely high achieving but very challenging group.  The kids loved it and using it made a huge difference.  I decided that I needed to go ahead and dive in to this and learn all I could!  I started downloading the materials, I put in Super Speed Math, and I watched a lot of video on YouTube!  At the end of the year, I sent more students to the "End of Year Multiplication Fact Party" than any other teacher!  I was sold and had to get more next week, I'll be driving myself and paying my own way to Pineville, LA to the WBT National Teacher Conference!  I can't wait to meet Mr. Biffle and his staff, and learn all that I can about this revolutionary teaching methodology and classroom management system!

  1. I used the Super Speed Words last year with my struggling readers in a Walk To Read classroom and they loved it. It raised their confidence levels and their fluency rates and gave them a much more positive attitude toward a skill with which they struggle. This coming year I'm moving to first grade and can't wait to try the Super Speed Math facts with them, along with so many more of the tools I'm hearing about from the Conference in LA. WBT is a such an awesome way to bring the fun back into our classrooms and get all our brains shifted UP! Thanks for sharing all your experiences!
