I just updated this handout for the upcoming school year. It is a weekly bell work sheet for students to complete during the first five minutes of class. I use it as a starter activity and way that I can quickly formatively assess what students know. I have also used this as a review of skills learned from a previous lesson, to introduce vocabulary words, or as grammar practice. In this updated version, students copy the question of the day and then answer it using "short answer format." The idea is to get students to use complete sentences and continually practice formatting their written expression.
This can be adapted to fit ANY subject area.
If you are looking for a pre-made worksheet of questions, I also have nine weeks' worth of bell work prompts for purchase in my store.

I will be adding more bell work prompts shortly!
