Each slide of this 15 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 15 days (enough for a month) of activities and focuses on journal entries, proofreading sentences, Brain Bats, vocabulary activities, describing optical illusions, and analogies. Also, each slide contains clip art, photos, or other artwork. While it was created for the month of May, it can be used for any month. Often called "bellringers", these activities will help get each class period off to a successful start.
