Do you need a new warm-up sheet for your students? This blank (and editable!) template will provide you with the perfect framework to adjust your warm-up plans based on the individual class and student needs!
This file includes four slightly different templates for student warm-up pages to be filled in daily by the students as they come into the classroom. A powerpoint file is included if you would like to type your questions on top of the template and print the files with questions. I love to use these warm-ups in my Title I Math classes, because it is a great way to review math vocabulary, skills, and processes. I use it as a spiral review, reviewing various problems from prior lessons. I continue to review a specific goal daily until the students have mastered it. Along with each set of problems, you can have your students write the objective by explaining how they solved the problem using the "I can" space. This is a great reinforcement of Common Core State Standards! View the preview to see each example.
My students use the blank sheets so they cannot work ahead. I simply write three problems on the board for the students to work out as they come into the classroom. After they finish the problems, they try to use their math vocabulary to describe the type of problem or process with the "I can" statement. I use the template with three different "I can" statements, so that we can review three topics each day. My students love to volunteer to come up to the board to teach the problem to the class and share their "I Can" statement for others to write on their warm-up page as well. I have used this template with both middle school and high school students.
Three of the options include spaces only for Monday through Thursday. You could use Friday for other necessary tasks such as journal entries, organization, reflecting on grades, etc. One option (double-sided) includes a space for every day, Monday through Friday. Choose whichever option best fits the needs of your classroom!
