Bellwork, warm-ups, bell ringers, "Train your Brain" should be quick to produce and engaging for the students! This bellwork is great spiral review, quick checks for previous learning, and standardized test practice. It is a combination of multiple choice and short answer. It is also a great way to get the kids thinking!
I have compiled the bellwork I have and intend to use for my eighth grade PreAlgebra class. I have provided four full weeks of bellwork no matter what my schedule or your schedule may be. (I plan all of my monthly bellwork based on 4 weeks. It works itself out. I usually have too many, but in the off chance I run out, I use the extra from previous months.)
Each week has five bellworks, one for each day. It should take the kids 5-10 minutes to complete.
Each bellwork has one student handout, and two PowerPoint slides.
There is one page per day with 2 or 3 duplicate handouts. This cuts down on your prep time tremendously!
One slide has the questions with no answers. I like to use this for Smart board discussions. You could also use it as display for students to use if paper is scarce for the handout. The second slide is animated and has answers provided.
For four weeks, you get 40 PowerPoint slides and 20 pages to duplicate for student handouts!
The concepts include:
• Linear vs Non-Linear
• Input/Output Tables
• Number line - Square roots
• Scientific Notation
• Coordinate Graphing
• Unit Price
• Rational vs. Irrational
• Domain & Range
• Linear Equations
• Systems of Equations
I find that sometimes it helps to put these same questions on weekly assessments!
THANKS so MUCH!
