This school year, the wonderful Mrs. D brought up the topic of Whole Brain Teaching. She mentioned some quick ideas to use every day and I started using those in my day. Of course, I let it slide after a while since I never truly embraced it all the way.
Skip forward to end of April. I am cruising around those wonderful first grade blogs out there and I come across other mentions of Whole Brain Teaching at 3rd Grade Thoughts with some great teacher-made posters at The Kinder Polka Dot Patch. So here I am on a beautiful Saturday, doing what all teachers do. I am watching those videos on YouTube and thinking, should I start this now? Or wait until a fresh new year?
Tell me, what do you do with new ideas? Do you jump in right away, following your whims? Do you finish out the current group and start fresh in the new year?
Do you use Whole Brain Teaching? Share!
