Wacky Wednesday! Whole Brain Teaching- HELP ME PLEASE!!




My love for Wacky Wednesday goes clear back to 1985!  This is me in second grade. 
M shares the same passion.  Please excuse the laundry, my house is STILL a mess!





M's friends on Wacky Wednesday!
Every Dr. Seuss outfit needs striped socks! 


My hat for hat day earlier in the week!

Now on to my next task! I jumped in feet first with whole brain teaching!  Today I tried Class, Yes, Classity Class, Yessity Yes, with smiles and frowns.  I have only half participating.  HELP!!! What do I do now????

  1. I love your pictures! What a fun activity!
    I do the "Claaaasss" "Yessss" thing also. Sometimes only a few of mine respond so I do it a few times in different voices until I feel MOST of them are answering me. If they are really off I'll say "Classs" and they answer "Yessss" then I 'll ask them a question like, "What color is my shirt" that will grab a few more who are curious to see what the answer is. Keep at it! It will work! : )

    By the way...I gave you an award on my blog. Stop by and check it out if you have time!

  2. Don't give up! It takes a while before they realize that is their "call to attention." :)

    After a while, it will be second nature to you and them and will work perfectly! One thing I can say is to keep it VERY consistent and VERY simple for the first few weeks - always say the same thing and expect the same response. Then after they are used to it, vary things a bit to keep them on their toes.

    It's pretty funny to do this at an assembly because my former 1st graders answer along with my current littles! Even better? I have younger siblings of one of my current littles that use this as the attention getter in their own home. Hee, hee.

    Loving the idea of wacky Wednesday!
