Product Description

Bell Ringers, Warm Ups, or a Do Now: No matter what you call this activity, students LOVE starting class with these engaging writing prompts. Their unique and colorful images focus and engage students from the time the bell rings. Use these 28 eye-catching PowerPoint slides with intriguing prompts to start class on time with a positive focus! ➽➽Best of all: NO PREP! Just display and GO!

Use this Writing Resource to

  • establish a routine and set the tone for the beginning of class.
  • add to your classroom management strategies.
  • start class in an organized way.
  • have your students practice their writing skills anytime during a class period.
  • spark one-on-one, small group, or full class discussions.
  • save yourself countless hours because it is already created for you!

What’s Included:

  • 28 PowerPoint slides, each with a coordinated photograph and prompt—5 weeks of prompts and one extra!
  • Techniques for Building a Classroom Community with Bell Ringers—A super helpful blog post from my teaching blog.

Help for YOU at the start of class!

Make an organized transition from one class to the next (especially if you teach different classes requiring different lessons, materials, technology, etc.)

Engage students with a purposeful activity while you take care of teacher tasks: attendance, helping a student who was absent the day before, etc.)

Give your students the writing practice they need in a small bite and have a formative grade for your grade book every single day.

Super Easy to Use (and NO PREP!)

  • Project one PowerPoint slide.
  • Ask students to put the date and the abbreviated prompt title from the Checklist Page at the top of their paper, Google Doc, etc. They pair perfectly with my Bell Ringer Journal Pages.
  • Add an optional task: Use a vocabulary word or at least one semicolon in your response, for example.
  • Set your timer for 5-7 minutes.
  • Optional sharing: turn and talk, whole class, shoulder partner, etc.
  • Grading Timesaver: Circulate as your students work and rubber stamp or check mark if they are on track. There's no need to wait for them to completely finish and hand in their responses. No work to take home and grade later!

    • are ready to use with NO advanced planning (so they can save you in a pinch!)
    • are flexible and can be used for any time length you choose, from 5 minutes to 15 minutes, or longer if desired. (Try this: for a quick 5-minute activity, I ask my students to write just one sentence - maybe two if they have to - but no more than that.)

    • can be used year after year!
