Description

MARCH THEMED: Each of the 25 Daily Warm-Up/Bell Ringer passages is aligned with the Common Core State Standards for ELA and are written for grades 5 to 8 but will also work for high school.

This resource work well for classroom, digital, and hybrid use. This is in form fillable PDF, PowerPoint and PDF with lines for printables.

From social media stars to March days in history to sports and beyond – these passages promote critical thinking and are aligned with the National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies for the fifth and eighth grades as well as the CCSS.

The questions are both constructed response and multiple choice and help you incorporate the – communication, critical thinking, collaboration and creativity your students need in order to be successful in school and in life. They are designed to help students think critically and to prepare them for STAAR, PARCC and Smarter Balanced assessments.

The topics are non-fiction / informational text and perfect for use as warm-ups, bell ringers, early finishers, unit reinforcers, partner or group work and/or lesson starters. They are designed to foster higher order thinking skills and writing across the curriculum. They are March, reading and writing themed and ask thought provoking questions to help students become independent thinkers and provide exercise for their brain muscles.

The passages are designed to be differentiated, so mix it up. Have students work alone, in pairs or in small groups. Encourage dialogue around the questions. If a passage seems particularly difficult for your students – pair up struggling readers with patient proficient readers and writers. Some of the best thinking happens this way.

These passages work for digital learning as well. They can be emailed or uploaded to any platform and assigned as warm-ups, lesson starters or reading assignments.
