PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Bell Ringers: Starting each class with a warm up has been a huge success in my classroom...and my students love these This or That Warm Up activities! Not only are they Common Core aligned, they're also incredibly engaging and motivating for students.

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.

Great news! There's a BUNDLE with 6 SETS of the This or That Daily ELA Warm Ups! Find 120 engaging bell ringers HERE.
