Lesson Warm-ups- Lesson Kick Starters for First Grade

Literacy Warm-Ups provide a year (over 200 warm-ups!) of engaging and meaningful

lesson starting explorations for spiral review every day of the school

year. The warm-ups provide high-interest engaging prompts to promote standards-based exploration.

This is a PowerPoint file that can be projected to a screen or board. You can also print this and place it under a document camera.

Day of the Week Alliteration

Each day of the week has three different (and highly engaging) strands of warm-ups which each focus on a different literacy skill. Simply choose and open the file for the day of the week from your desktop or place a printed version under the document camera. It’s that simple!

Students cheer when it is time for warm-up! There are 35-75 different prompts

for each day of the week to last you more than the full school year! Literacy warm-ups can be done in any order and are designed to complement any curriculum.

When to use Literacy Warm Ups

Use digital literacy Warm-Ups in your whole-group instruction, intervention groups, RTI groups, guided reading groups, or as a resource for volunteers assisting in the classroom. The warm-up activities can take anywhere from 2 minutes to 10 minutes depending how far you choose to explore each concept.

The Purpose of Literacy Warm-Ups

Any literacy curriculum covers a huge amount of content over the course of a school year. Students must take on new concepts daily, weekly, and monthly all year long, but we also need to be sure to give ample time for students to review and apply learned information daily. This ensures students gain fluency, accuracy, and deeper understanding of the concepts as they continually develop through the school year.

The Literacy Warm-up allows students to go deeper into learned concepts and to apply their knowledge in short yet meaningful explorations.
