3rd Grade Thoughts: Whole Brain Teaching: Yes/No Way! & QTs I love the hand gestures. Great game ideas too. I <3 this site. So excited to implement some of these into my day.
Whole Brain Teaching incorporates repetition of call-and-response and hand motions into classroom management and learning content. The theory is that the muscle memory of the actions helps to supr the long term memory centers. Appears to be helpful for students who have difficulties with processing speed.
Katie Jarvis demonstrates her whole brain teaching method for rules in the art room. I did her method verbatim this week and it was MAGICAL.
