Whole Brain Teaching
Anyone using wbt out there? I'm implementing this year and so excited about it!!!

I do parts of it. Doing the whole thing doesn't really fit with my personality but I do find some parts very useful. Good luck to you - hope it works great in your classroom.

some of it
I've tried some of it last year (teach, ok and scoreboard) and loved it! I've been reading the book again, and hope this year to implement more of it.

I really like it!

Mighty oh yeah!
I started in 3 years ago when I was in 5th grade. Just played around with some of the attention getters. Forgot about it when I switched to 3rd and implemented towards the end and had wished I used it all along! Last year, I used it a lot but noticed when I didn't (kids got crazy). it really does work. They LOVE the super improver board (got rid of the clip chart after I stopped teaching 1st grade-I hate that thing!)

I can't say enough good things about it honestly.

I use parts of it and really like it. I hope to expand a little this year. I use class-yes, sometimes the scoreboard, the 5 rules, and teach-ok. Good luck! There are some good videos out there of teachers in action if you haven' already looked.

I wish I knew more about it or could find a local conference to attend. I teach ELA and do air punctuation a lot. The kids love it, and IT WORKS!

More videos
I wish there were more content related videos. Or I wish I thought about how to make my lessons more visual before the actual lesson was taking place and then remembered said gestures. I remember using it for a social studies unit last year and the kids really did well through assessments.

Works great
I used Whole Brain Teaching with 7th grade Social Studies. Students especially loved Class 👏👏. Teach. Students would ask if they were doing Class teach when they walked in the door. 8th grade teachers would ask me how to do it, since they now had my students. It works really well when you are being Stulled. I got rave reviews.
