Ok so i dedicated Wednesdays to finding fantastic websites that only teachers can appreciate... Many will be interactive websites for kids to use. However, I found a teacher site that I simply MUST share with you!
The site I will share is Teaching and Learning Together. You may have seen this teacher, Miss Freundlich on Pinterest as it is where I first saw one of her videos. However, as I began doing more searching and video-watching - I fell in LOVE with her teaching style. She uses the WBT philosophy of teaching. WBT stands for Whole Brain Teaching - it also used to be called Power Teaching. I use some aspects of WBT in my own classroom, but seen many more from her that I am interested in trying.
Check her out! Her website if now one of my favorites!
I love the hand gestures and the kids being so much more interactive in the "Teach/Okay". I've never seen the "blow it in your hand and release" - LOVE THAT!
The kids learn those expectations so well they can do it independently--so important! It gives them such ownership of the rules.
My favorite is rule #5 ;0) Keep Your Dear Teacher Happy - doesn't that really incorporate all of them :0)
I love seeing the kids using the mirror technique - how focused they are!
I hope you enjoyed these videos as much as I did! If you liked these videos make sure you check out her website!
