Bell Ringers: Day of the Week Questions and Prompts

Engaging activities for the beginning of class.

For each day of the week, there are four questions or prompts also known as Morning Messages. These questions or prompts can be written on a board or displayed using the PowerPoint Presentation included with this product. These are designed to be used for morning meetings, advisory, or anytime, including the beginning of class or end-of-the-class reflection. These prompts are useful to keep in a substitute folder. You can have them ready to use for shortened periods or when there’s that odd amount of time left at the end of a lesson. Each day includes a question or prompt, an optional student handout, and a sharing strategy that you could easily incorporate into other lessons. Finally, these activities build community and relationships between you and your students and among your students throughout the school year.
