    Do you use it? How does/has it worked for you? What techniques have you found successful for your classroom? Nobody else in my school uses this, so I would be the only one.

    I use some small parts of it with my students, but for elementary, I think it would be dynamite. Go sign up for the website and watch a bunch of videos!

    I found it on Pinterest and used WBT in both second and sixth grade last year, during student teaching. My cooperative teachers, other teachers, and students had never seen it before. Some teachers thought it was silly - the students did not! They responded so well to it, and I am hoping to learn more about it. If you have a facebook there are mini lessons being posted there too.

    I mainly used the rules, the score board, and "Mirror." It was so fun watching both grade levels really get into it. :)

    I use the rules, Class-yes, and several other techniques - I have had admins and other teachers who didn't like it, but I've also had admins and other teachers who did. Go figure!

    LOVE it!

    I save it for important concepts vs doing it all day everyday.
