One week down...

My first whole brain teaching week is over...and boy was it harder than I thought!  Getting used to the techniques and using the scoreboard properly took me all week - but finally, after showing my third graders the YouTube video of Farrah Shippley (you rock!) and her kindergarteners, they started to respond and we fell into a groove.  What a difference!  All of a sudden they were focused and listening.  We were able to get some work done and I didn't feel like I was asking them to stop talking all of the time.  I would say this week was a success with many more to follow!

Yeah to my third graders!  You are all so awesome and I am so proud of your work this week.  Let's keep it up!!!
