This is a morning quick Bell Ringer students can work on independently or with a partner. It took me ALL year to create this!! But all the hard work was worth it! I have focused on Higher Level thinking questions on ELAR and Science (5th grade TEKS, that are also aligned with lower grade level Science TEKS). There's two jobs: they will write the DOK question in their DOK Notebooks and answer it in paragraph form then they will draw and complete their graphic organizer using Science Content. Everyday's work counts as 20 points and at the end of the week it totals up to 100 points. I use this as a Writing grade. What a great way to incorporate ELAR, Science and Writing!! What's very neat about this is that it is Bilingual, Spanish and English. Even-though the translation is there I encourage my students to use their resources and write the responses in English. That's why I also love giving them the freedom to work together while they are eating their breakfast they are having great conversations on higher order thinking and planning on creating their Science/ELAR graphic organizers.
