WBT Scoreboard

 I have been using Whole Brain Teaching in my classroom this year, and I LOVE IT!  I made these cards for the Scoreboard- Smileys/Frownies.  I wear the different level on my lanyard each day.  I carry my Vis-a-Vis Pen with me everywhere I go.  It is truly amazing.  Even if I wasn't doing WBT- I would still use this for a Behavior Plan.  For those of you unfamiliar with this- you should really look it up on  It is such an exciting and engaging way to teach.
    To explain more about the cards above, Level 1 is Smileys and Frownies- Level 2 is to focus on one of the rules (for example Rule 2: Raise your hand for permission to speak.  I always say not to be a squawker.) -Level 3 is Girls versus Boys- Level 4 is Doubles Day (which is great for adding doubles all day long)- and Level 5 is Students versus Teacher.  
This is what it looks like for Level 2, then I add tally marks all day when they are earning Smileys or Frownies.  Thank you WBT!  You have made my life so much easier!


  1. So adorable! I love the lanyard scoreboard!! Gotta make me some of those!!!

  2. Thank you for introducing me to WBT. Ever since I came across your website I have been inspiried to read more about it and implement it into my classroom for this year.
    Thanks again :)

    Do they get a reward everyday they win smilies? How do you reward them?

    1. I am so sorry. I never saw this! I do reward them with Cheerios! It is simple and free. They love them! Have you seen these...they are a creation by Sarah Cooley. I purchased them through TPT. If you go to her website and look them up, they are great to use to inspire your students. Once again, I am so sorry!

  3. How did you make the lanyard scoreboard cards? Would you email me at and let me know? I need to make some of those! I love whole brain teaching!!
