After a few years of just using the management pieces, I began using the oral writing. WOW! I've never had such strong writing since I began teaching 21 years ago. The conventions of writing are taught using "brainies" ... These are gestures that go along with the rules of writing (capitalization, punctuation, end marks, quotation marks, apostrophes, indenting, etc.). The class practices orally first, then we write. As I'm walking around helping individuals, all I have to do when I see something missing is make the gesture with the accompanying sound and the student knows what to fix. It's brilliant!
I have also incorporated several other "games" such as the Super Improver Wall (works on individual improvement in anything from behavior issues to academic success), the Super Speed Reading (works on sight words), Super Speed Grammar (works on grammar rules), Smoothy Bumper Planet (works on the 17 tricky numbers 1-100 ... esp. the teens), and Mind Soccer (a high energy review game).
This book covers mainly the classroom management side of things. Once you realize how well your class can run using these methods, you will want more. For that, check out the new book: 122 Amazing Games and the website. There are endless resources out there for WBT and, other than the books, they are all FREE!!!
Although I work mainly as a tutor with one or two students at a time, I have adapted the WBT methods and find them as valuable tools to have in the box.
You can see some fine examples of WBT on Youtube, but the book adds further information and depth.
