Product Description
If you’re on the hunt for daily warm-ups that work, then you’re going to love this bundle of 3 sets of This or That Warm-Ups! They’re wildly popular with students and teachers because they’re the perfect mix of engagement and learning!

This bundle includes 60 This or That Warm Ups with a total of 120 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 60 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 with each set 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.
