Each slide of this 23 slide powerpoint includes a 3-5 minute activity, and is the perfect way to start each day in a Language Arts classroom. Created by Beverly Brown, it contains 20 days (enough for a month of classes) of activities and focuses on journal entries, proofreading sentences, vocabulary activities, brainbats, describing optical illusions, and analogies. Also, each slide contains clip art, photos, or other artwork. It has a February theme (with 3 extra Valentine's Day slides), but can be used for any month. Often called "bellringers", these activities will help get each class period off to a successful start.
