I’m very interested in the power of whole brain teaching. You can learn more about it here:
I started off with whole brain teaching of the different types of lines and then angles. (This is where I make a statement and show gestures and then the children copy me by teaching their partner.) Thereafter we went out on to the field and using the bodily kinesthetic learning modes, we created the different lines and angles using our bodies.
The students loved being able to move and collaborate, and it’s a really fun way to make Maths come alive!
