This is the first video I saw on the topic:
The above video shows students much older than the ones I work with. If you go to the Whole Brain Teaching website, or simply search "Whole Brain Teaching" on You tube, you'll find loads of videos of Whole Brain Teaching methods used with every age.
As we're finishing up the school year, I had asked the children to list their favorite memories from second grade. At the top of most of the lists:
- The Scoreboard
- The Improvement Wall
- Super Speed Math
- Super Speed 1,000 (Sight words)
You guessed it, these are all straight from Whole Brain Learning! The best part? It's all free!
I've been going to their weekly webinars since last fall. (Almost every Tuesday at 8:00 Eastern) I've learned so much! All these webinars are available to watch on their site. I do prefer the live broadcasts, since you're able to comment and ask questions, but they save all the programs, and they have most definitely enhanced my teaching.
