What educators are saying

I use this as bell work with my 8th graders. I have it projected on the Smartboard for them to complete first thing. Then we go over the answers as a class. Great way to review grammar.


Included in this product is a Powerpoint presentation comprised of 200 Bell Ringers for Middle School ELA (7th or 8th grade). These 200 questions will provide you with more than enough bell ringers to last the full school year teaching English.

Bell ringers, also known as warm-ups or do nows, are the perfect teaching strategy to establish routine! Students sit in their seats right away to work on their daily warm-up question. These prompts are an excellent way to review important ELA skills, but it’s also a great tool for test prep! You can skip around categories/slides to fit the needs of your students and your curriculum.

The bell ringers are divided into categories:

  • Parts of Speech
  • Grammatical Corrections

(To include: misplaced modifiers, dangling modifiers, subject-verb agreement, fragments, capitalization, etc.)

  • Figurative Language

(To include: allusion, personification, pun, euphemism, hyperbole, verbal irony, dramatic irony, situational irony, simile, oxymoron, idiom, personification, juxtaposition, metaphor, and paradox)

  • Literary Devices

(To include: tone, theme, alliteration, etc.)

  • Sentence Types

(To include: dependent and independent clauses, simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex sentences)

  • Greek and Latin Root Words
  • Active and Passive Voice
  • Verbals

(To include: infinitives, participles, and gerunds)

  • Verb Moods

(To include: subjunctive, conditional, indicative, and interrogative mood)

  • Punctuation

(To include: hypens, dashes, commas, semi-colons, ellipses, and colons)

  • Connotation and Denotation

I personally use this for my 8th grade students to help prepare them for the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA).
