Whole Brain Teaching Is 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. Delivers information in short “chunks” Students then teach each other what they have learned. Find more information on our classroom webpage, under Symbaloo: Online Classroom Resources.
Class Dojo Is an online classroom management tool. Students are awarded positive and negative points based on their behavior. Parents and Students have a code to login at home and see the points from the day. Students will be able to edit their avatars and see comments from the teacher about their behavior.
