Giveaway and my try at videos!

Hooray to MJ at teaching in heels!! The random number generator picked number 8! I will be sending your copy here in a little bit!
If you have not checked out the Biscuit unit hit that TPT button on the left side, it is one of my featured products!

In other news, Ms. Simoneaux and I came across a bunch of youtube videos all about Whole Brain Teaching. We fell in LOVE. It is so interactive and a lot of call and response, and we though hey our kids are active this will be perfect! One key part is the rules. It is all full of movements, but I am telling you those kids KNOW those rules. I can just say the rule number now and they repeat it.

Here is our list:

1. Follow directions quickly. 
2. Listen while your teacher is talking. 
3. Raise your hand for permission to speak. 
4. Respect yourself, others, and your school. 
5. Make smart choices. 
and my favorite....6. Make your teacher happy!

And today I filmed my kids doing the rules with me today! I have a few movie stars in the middle but you get the general idea. I highly reccommend trying it and searching the internet for even more examples. Click the link below to see my kiddos!

5 notes to the teacher:

Jennifer

This is my 3rd year to do the Whole Brain Teaching....I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!! AND so do the higher-ups when they come in!!! And the "Teach-ok" is perfect for the "Pair and Share"! We do that EVERYDAY!!! I'm glad you like it so much!!

Ms. Simoneaux

Haha I love your facial expressions! Typical!

I also LOVE whole brain teaching, It really engages the whole class and cuts down on management issues. :)

Sometimes, I even hear myself saying, "Rule #5!" to many people in public (my boss, the cable guy, my husband!)
