Whole Brain Teaching

Dear  Parents,

As the year progresses, you may notice that our classroom doesn’t run like other classrooms. We 
will be learning through Whole  Brain  Teaching -a research based system that utilizes all areas of 
the brain, keeps children engaged throughout their lessons, and helps them retain much more 
information than the standard lecture- discussion model.

Whole  Brain  Teaching  is a highly interactive form of instruction that delivers information to 
students in short “chunks.” Kids  then  teach  what they have just learned to their partners, using 
hand-gestures to help remember specific vocabulary.  While students teach each other, the teacher 
walks around the room to discover who understands the lesson and who needs more instruction.

Research shows that children  retain  more  information  when they have an opportunity to put it 
into their own words and use gestures to emphasize key instructional units … plus,  it's  amazingly 
 fun!

For more information about Whole Brain Teaching please contact me, come by for a classroom visit,

Thank You!
