In a nutshell, WBT is an interactive teaching style. It's very engaging, and involves a lot of student verbalization and practice of content and vocab. as they are learning. Students won't be asleep or checked out with this teaching style! They are moving their hands and bodies, and talking a lot!
I have to admit that it takes some energy and enthusiasm, but when you're doing it, the kids are having fun and they're eyes are glued to you, so it's also exciting and rewarding.
Seeing is believing… I have added some videos that really impressed me of WBT in action to our first grade wiki.
There are also so many free resources on Pinterest and TpT. Some are also linked to the wiki page.
Just wanted to share this with you, because I have had some success with it. It really cuts down on behavior problems when the kids are having fun and taking an active role in lessons.
I've posted about WBT before including an awesome video. Check that post out HERE.
