The most common question or concern I have seen on the WBT forums has been how do I start... what do I do next? As I was making myself a chart for how to implement various WBT strategies and tools in the first two weeks of school, I realized that other teachers could benefit from this information.
I am still new to the WBT scene so I
am not an expert... but I will be an expert on how WBT is working in my
classroom. I have another blog (PAWSitively Wild for WBT), however that
is a place for me to go into detail. This blog is going to be a SHORT
and sweet timeline of my first FULL WBT year. Last year I used the Core
Four and Big Seven all year. This year I CAN'T WAIT to use Super
Improver Wall, Genius Ladder, and Crazy Professor Reading Game all year
(rather than the last month of school). I also plan to use Super Speed,
Red/Green Marker, Writing Game, Prove It, and SO much more!
first official day back in my classroom will be August 10th (that is
the first teacher workday). First Day with kids is August 14th. I plan
on being back in my classroom working by August 3 (fingers crossed for
As I do things to prepare for the year I
will post what I am doing. I have already done a couple of things this
summer. I will make my next post about those preparations. Stay tuned
for a PAWSitively awesome year!
