I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a Whole Brain teaching training in my district back in April. Chris Biffle and Chris Rekstad were awesome! They have amazing ideas and were very inspiring! If you don’t know much about whole brain teaching, check out their website – wholebrainteaching.com I will be implementing aspects of whole brain teaching into my classroom even more this year.
There are 5 classroom rules in a whole brain teaching classroom. These rules are practiced daily, multiple times so that the students master them and the classroom runs smoothly. My school has adopted the 5 rules as our school rules this year. I created some rules posters for my classroom and other teachers in my school and I have uploaded them to Teachers Pay Teachers as a freebie!
I also created a poster that students can sign showing they agree to follow the 5 rules. If you laminate it, you could re-use it year after year!
