Challenging Kids will always be around!

My friends, I can't tell you how long it has been since I have had this many challenging kids. My colleagues look at my class and marvel at how they all got in one room! Since the year began I have quickly been indoctrinated into the world of challenging kids....more so than ever. WBT knows challenging kids so I knew that I just needed to stay the course. Let me tell you...if you have challenging kids, you have got to use the methods of WBT because there are only two things that are going to make the year a success; one...the methods of WBT and two... Love `em.

The summer is winding down and I have begun to think, 47% of my thinking, about getting right at this great job we call teaching. The summer has been filled with missions trips, house projects and gaining another teen driver.

As I get back to thinking about school, I know that the Brainies, Oral Writing, and SuperSpeed Games are going to be an even bigger part this year. Brainies set the tone for the critical thinking that we all need to be doing every day in all subjects.  Of course oral writing with the Genius Ladder will start right out of the shoot also; most likely on Day 1. SuperSpeed games supplement any required curriculum that you must use so I use them generously.

The year will start soon, but I know that with WBT on my side, nothing can stop the learning!

7th Annual National Conference

Here we are once again in the fabulous South! The teachers have gathered at Louisiana College in Pineville, Louisiana to abosorb as much funtricity as possible. Over 1000 teachers are here learning all they can about Classroom Management, Writing and Lesson Design.

We have had some great conversations with teachers about getting kids engaged in class, writing complex sentences and setting kids up for success in the Super Improvers.

Check out #2014WBT and #WBTNation on Twitter and Instagram if you want to see some teachers having a great time.
