This year, since I’m in a new state and a new school, I decided to start doing Whole Brain Teaching! My school does not do PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports), like I am used to, so I needed something to teach expectations. This is it! That kids really love it! I found a teacher who has the awesomest (is that a word?) YouTube videos of her class and WBT. She is so inspiring! She seems so fun, laid back, but on top of things. I aspire to be like her!
Check her out here:
Here is her website. I just love her! I hope she creates a teacher blog soon!
One problem I’ve been having with doing Whole Brain Teaching is that the cute signs out there all have way more white kids on them. My school is 90% Filipino. I literally have 2 white kids in my class of 27. If I post pictures of white only kids in my room, I am not representing my class – I am representing me. Once I looked around and noticed this, I felt awful. I want to celebrate my students’ heritage, not make them feel bad that they don’t look like me. So, I decided to make my own set! It is for free on TpT, so you can go over and snag a set for your self! Included are two options for each rule, and four options for the teacher. I hope you can use it in your classroom! If you can, please leave me some feedback on TpT. I love hearing from you all!
How do you teach expectations in your classroom?
