These daily ELA warm-ups are incredibly popular! That’s because they’re not only the perfect way to review critical language arts skills at the start of each class, they’re also so fun for students! They’re all about choice and tapping into multiple learning styles while giving students a chance to showcase their learning as they complete each bell ringer.
This resource includes 20 This or That Warm Ups
with a total of 40 activities that review critical ELA skills. Each This or That Warm Up includes instruction (at the top of the worksheet) and then 2 choices for students to showcase their learning. After reviewing each choice, students can choose to do the “This” activity or the “That” activity. The choices promote engagement and tap into multiple learning styles. All 20 of the This or That Warm Ups
can be taught sequentially or used throughout the year. The warm ups are an awesome way to start each class. They typically take between 5-10 minutes, and often lead to great mini-lessons and discussions.
Four tracking and grading options are included in this resource so that you can use the method that works best in your classroom. Also, you’ll find tips and ideas for implementing the warm ups into your instruction and teacher keys for each warm up.
