This file contains bellringers for each weekday of December up until the 18th. Bellringer exercises include short writing prompts with relevant information about the month of December, winter, or historical events. Other exercises ask students to edit errors (spelling, punctuation, and word usage) in sentences.
In my class, I give students the packet with the entire month's bellringers to keep in their class folders. Each day at the beginning of class students complete the activity for that day. Each activity is worth 5 points, which can be added up weekly or at the end of the month. You could also use a stamp to check bellringers daily. Whatever works for you!
This is a good way to make sure students have something to do to begin class each day. You also won't have to worry about picking up a million papers - it's all in one packet ready to go!
I used this for 7th graders but it could be used or modified to work for younger or older students.
The .zip file contains a PDF (so all of the formatting and fonts are good to go) and a Word file in case you need to make changes. Also included is an Answer Key for the grammar edits.
