Season 1, Episode 8.
Welcome to Little Things are Big Things Education with K-Dub and T-Free. I’m Tim Freeburg, I teach high school math in Bowling Green, KY and am working on my 7th year of teaching in the classroom. In addition, I have facilitated social and emotional learning workshops around the country for 2 years with a group called Challenge Day. And I am David Kilpatrick-White. I have taught both middle school and high school social studies and am working through my 10th year. I also have coached primarily football, soccer and track over the past 20 years. I have been both a head coach and a department head. We both want to welcome you to a conversation about how valuable relationship building is with our students in the classroom. We will cover topics like; connection activities, how relationships can be used to encourage student growth, and sharing our favorite memories from teaching. Everything we have accomplished in our classrooms goes back to the relationships we build with our students and is totally replicable. Feel free to use, share, adapt everything we provide here. And if you would like to go even deeper, we would love to have you join our Live Monthly Group, called the “Teacher Vault,” where we go live, with you, every month for an hour and deep dive into the latest research and tools available for you to use in your classroom and connect with students. You will also have access to teacher resources we have created and use in our classrooms. Now, without further ado, let’s get on to this week’s episode.
Music week! Today’s big idea – You should be playing music in your classrooms. If you’re not, change that now! K-Dub will make you a guarantee that music creates connections and I’ll share a story that will dazzle you with light. And we finish with a special bonus and demo how we use music with a couple writing prompts. We would love for you to share your responses on LittleBigEd.com, YouTube, or our Facebook Page.

Until next week,
