Whole Brain Teaching - Classroom Management

About 2 years ago I found something that has helped my classroom management out immensely!!  It is called Whole Brain Teaching!!  I have taken and adapted a lot of their techniques to fit my needs.   If you have never heard of this, I urge you to go check it out!  You can search them on YouTube and see some of it in action too!!!
This is the way we start our day EVERY morning!  :)  This is just one of their techniques that I LOVE!!!  I have posters for each rule that I will try and remember to take a picture of tomorrow - I will see if I can find the docs on my computer and post those too!!


  1. I stumbled across WBT last summer, after a very rough school year last year I was searching for a solution. I too adapted some of the techniques to use this year. I love class/yes, and teach/ok.


  2. Ooooh me too! Hands and eyes works great too!!! :)

  3. I use it, too! I get so many teachers and parents who comment that they love to hear me do the "Class, Yes!"

  4. Thanks for the tip. I use a rubric with similar rules..we recite these together, but I like this format...it's simple and to the point! Can't wait to see your next post on this. Thanks for sharing!

  5. What a beautiful blog. You have lots of great ideas for me to look at. I have heard of whole brain teaching but now I want to explore it further. Thanks for the tip and the precious video.

  6. Whole Brain Teaching has completely changed the way I teach! It is so easy but it makes a big impact. And all of their resources are free!

    I have a blog about it. The first post describes how it has changed my classroom for the better this year: http://awholebrainteacher.blogspot.com/2011/04/my-wbt-journey.html

  7. I agree with Ali! Whole Brain Teaching has changed my teaching style completely and lowered my stress level immensely. The kids are focused and having a blast - so am I!!!

    Read my blog to learn more about my experiences and the techniques!


  8. Two things....
    One I have used WBT for the past 3 years with my students and LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! Several of our teachers now use it and it's catching on with newbies:)

    Secondly....Today I pitched ESGI to my team and they loved it so much that we pitched it to our Asst. principal who loved it so much that we are now searching for funding so we can use it this year!! Thanks for sharing!!
