These 20 Daily ELA Warm-Ups are a great way to start each class! Use them as bell ringers, morning work, or even put them together into a bell ringer journal!

This resource includes 20 This or That Warm Ups with a total of 40 activities that review critical ELA skills. Each This or That Warm Up includes instruction (at the top of the worksheet) and then 2 choices for students to showcase their learning. After reviewing each choice, students can choose to do the “This” activity or the “That” activity. The choices promote engagement and tap into multiple learning styles. All 20 of the This or That Warm Ups can be taught sequentially or used throughout the year. The warm ups are an awesome way to start each class. They typically take between 5-10 minutes, and often lead to great mini-lessons and discussions.
Four tracking and grading options are included in this resource so that you can use the method that works best in your classroom. Also, you’ll find tips and ideas for implementing the warm ups into your instruction and teacher keys for each warm up.
In addition, this resource is available in a version for grades 3-5. You might want to check it out or even add both to your teaching toolkit. That way you can differentiate instruction even more by giving the less challenging warm-ups to students that need them. Check out the version for grades 3-5 HERE.
DIGITAL VERSION INCLUDED – A google-compatible version of the 20 This or That Warm-Ups is also included. In addition, there is a digital version of one of the grade tracking sheets.
