PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a great classroom management tool! I love having a few minutes to take attendance before jumping in to class. Buzzers work like bell work or journal writing, with a little twist. The “Buzzer” is the writing prompt. This packet includes 30 prompts, so you can be picky and choose the ones you like best since there are extras. On Monday, students are given what I call a Buzzer form. I keep them either in their student folders, or in a specified location in the room.

Each day when students come to class, they retrieve their Buzzer form. The Buzzer is displayed on the projector. Students enter their response to the prompt, then prepare for class. When I am ready to start class, we quickly review and discuss their thoughts and feelings on the topic, then transition. I usually copy each week's Buzzer forms on different colored paper to help keep weeks separate. They are collected and turned in on Friday.

Included in the packet:
~ 30 Slide PPT with December themed writing prompts.
~ Varied layouts of the Buzzer prompts in PDF format including: 1 prompt per page, 6 per page, 3 per page, or as an outline in case you choose to read them orally or would like to keep track of which ones you have used.
~ December Buzzer form
~ 7-12 grade Language Arts Common Core Connections
~ Teacher Guide - How to Use Buzzers
