Getting the hang of Brain Toys

Today I felt that I used the air white board effectively. We were reviewing finding the main idea in a story. The day before we had used a diagram with the main idea in the middle and the details in circles around it. after we had identified the main idea, I had the students take out their imaginary white boards and we drew the diagram and "wrote in" the main idea and details as we had done yesterday. Then we did teach..ok, and the students taught each other using the diagram.

I'm so excited to be learning to use brain toys, that I am using my imaginary white board and drawing myself a great big ice cream sundae to celebrate!!

  1. OH! Thanks for reminding me about air white board! I'll have to try it next week.

  2. I have been "dabbling" in WBT for 2 and a half years. This is the first year that I have gotten serious with it. I look forward to reading your Blog. I like your style!
    (I was raised in southern Cal. and made a yearly trip to Gilroy to visit the Children's Home there (late 1960's and 70's). They had a fund-raising celebration each year. It was a beautiful part of the State. I have great memories from those visits.)

  3. Thanks for the comments. I did use the air white board today too!
