Brain Awareness Week

Since starting Whole Brain Teaching (WBT), I have been fascinated with thinking of more ways to get my student's brains to work. I found out that a local college was celebrating Brain Awareness Week. I set up a presentation for my students and the local news came to my classroom. They were SOOOO excited! We got brain caps and learned the definition for a sesquipedalian! 2nd graders understanding what that word means much less saying it is IMPRESSIVE! 
Dr. Ramey speaking with my class. They loved their brain caps.

Aren't these just cool. They kept pointing to the front saying, "This is the pre-frontal cortex. We need to use this more!
