Here's a Month
of perseverance themed bellringers all based on an original non-fiction text about Walt Disney. Supporting growth mindset, the topic of perseverance is perfect for the beginning of the year!
Each week, students are given one sentence from the text and asked questions about:
★ adjectives or adverbs (word choice)
★ reading skills (compare/contrast, cause/effect, inference, & author's purpose)
★ one "wild card" where a special question is asked about that sentence.
Students can record their answers on the question sheet or by using a special interactive notebook foldable that matches the sentence for each week!
