Have your students in their seats and working on an assignment as soon as the bell rings. I find that it is crucial to have them on task from the first minute of class. These bell ringers provide and engaging, fun, and meaningful way to get students on task and prepared for the day's learning.
This is volume 7 of my Month of Bell Ringers! This is a great resource for Writing and ELA teachers to use for bell ringers! There is a mixture of grammar and writing. There are 25 different prompts or questions. These bell ringers are engaging and change every day, so the students can find excitement in what they will be working on each day!
5 Motivation Monday prompts
5 Tweak it Tuesday prompts with answers
5 Write it out Wednesday prompts
5 Think about it Thursday prompts
5 Feel Good Friday prompts
This prompt gives students a motivational quote of the day. Students must then write about what the quote means to them as well as how it can be put to use in their daily decisions and choices.
Tweak It Tuesday
On Tuesdays, students are given a quote from a book, movie, or mentor sentences. These quotes and sentences have grammatical errors that students must correct. After they have made their corrections, there is a slide that contains the answers. I show my students the answers after they have had plenty of time to answer.
Write it out Wednesday
Each Wednesday, students are given a writing prompt. It may be narrative, informational, or argumentative. Students must respond to the prompt and write as much as they can in this amount of time. I typically have the students to aim for a complete paragraph.
Think About It Thursday
On Thursdays, students are given a prompt to stimulate thinking. This may be a decision that they would have to make, a preference, or anything along those lines. Students must respond to the prompt by writing down their thoughts.
Feel Good Friday
Every Friday, students will respond to a "feel good" prompt. This may involve thing that have happened this week, something that the student it good at, or even acts of kindness.
