This is my cliffnotes version of using brain research into the classroom. Even though I geared it for kindergarten, it can be easily adapted into other primary grade levels.
This packet goes over how to start the school year with procedures, rules, morning meetings, filling buckets, open house, and other activities. Books are suggested with possible activities to help start a school year using brain-based research. Download the preview to see a set of Filling bucket ideas.
Common Core Standards: RI.K.10, K.CC.3, K.CC.4, RF.K.1d
I have taught for over 15 years and enjoy being in the moment with my students. They keep me young! I have also worked and created teacher workshops for my school district with other educational leaders.
