Tomorrow is the big day! Summer is over, and school is here. I was just sitting back and realizing how different I feel going into this school year after having one year of Whole Brain Teaching under my belt.
LAST YEAR: Frantically re-watching Whole Brain Teaching videos and rehearsing in my mind what to say.
THIS YEAR: I listed the procedures I need to teach in my lesson plans, and I'm ready to go!
LAST YEAR: Nervous about looking stupid in front of other teachers that would come in my classroom.
THIS YEAR: Can't wait to share the joy with others! The aids that work with me excitedly asked if I was going to use Whole Brain Teaching again this year!
LAST YEAR: Wondering how the parents would react to this unique style of management and teaching.
THIS YEAR: I'm excited to invite parents into the classroom to volunteer and check out what we do. And I can't wait to tell them about the Universal Homework Model!
I'm anticipating an awesome year! There are so many new strategies that I am excited to be incorporating this year: PowerPix, Brain Toys, Genius Ladder, and so much more!
