"Teach Like a Champion" cites Bell Work (or "Do Now" work) as a successful teaching strategy for helping students focus and settle at the beginning of the class period.
This is also an excellent way to implement the Common Core principle of "everybody reads and writes in every subject." In my Chemistry classroom, I would often post a short article on the projector for them ("everybody reads"), and then have them answer 1-2 questions on their "Do Now" sheet ("everybody writes").
This template has six blank "Do Now" assignments, but can be easily edited to add more. Each "Do Now" also includes a spot for the date, "what we are studying," and "my score" if it is graded right away.
I have included a docx file (editable), and a pdf file.
If purchased, it would really help me out if you would quickly rate this product!
