The 7 Wonders of the Whole Brain World!

These wonders of the WBT world of course are the Big 7 Daily Instruction Techniques. Today was my first day of school, and I vowed that this is all that we would do....all day.Yes, teach the kids the Big 7 so that we can use them all day every day all year long. I may even do them all day again tomorrow.

You know the most frustrating thing for teachers is the whole concept of the kids don't listen and don't follow the rules. I'm going to give up a few days of instruction here in the beginning so that I can have some great learning times the rest of the year. Management is crucial these days and the WBT way will always get you what you need, just be patient with it.

My students today were on the edge of their seats all day, waiting for the next great wonder of the WBT world. Tomorrow will be more fun and learning!


  1. Sounds like you had a great day! I star Monday and kids on Wed. Will be in touch next week. Have a blast tomorrow!

  2. I'm so excited to read your blog! I had the privilege of attending your conference in Joplin and I know you have a lot of wisdom to share.

    I sat down to write first day lesson plans yesterday and realized that I couldn't really fit in much content since I had so many procedures to teach- I guess that is ok! It will just set us up for a GREAT year ahead!
