I started to dabble in WBT this past year when I moved states and taught a new grade level in Hawaii. I had always worked in a Positive Behavior and Intervention Supports (PBiS) school that had school-wide rules, expectations, incentives, and discipline. My new school has a behavior acronym, but nothing else. Our acronym is TORCH. There is a torch in our school seal, which is a popular Hawaiian symbol usually meaning light of knowledge or wisdom.
T - tenacious
O - observant
R - respectful
C - compassionate
H - honorable
I felt that I could teach these traits, but I still needed some concrete rules for my classroom. In walked WBT. There were rules, routines, expectations, and systems. I was in love after seeing my very first video!
I even made my own rules to match my bright colored classroom decor! You can grab a free copy by clicking on the picture.
Through this blog, I hope to become a certified WBT teacher this year! I plan to share many more freebies with you as I implement WBT in my classroom. I also hope to do some videos in my class! Follow along with me on my new journey! It should be filled with tons of fun!
