Do you find your homeroom periods to be hectic? Are your students trying to get your attention, speaking too loudly, or not participating in the morning routine like you would like them to? Do you have to juggle attendance, homework, lunch money, and notes from home? If you have answered yes to just one of these questions, January Brain Busters just might be a little piece of calm that you need to start your day.
This file contains a PowerPoint and pdf file for you to use first thing in the morning. 20 Brain Busters and their answers are included as well. Project the Brain Buster of the day onto your SmartBoard, or equivalent, and have your students think of what the answer could be while you are doing your attendance recording, checking homework, and all the other things you have to do before your actual classes start. There is a monthly recording sheet for the students to keep track of the answers they come up with.
This product has been designed to help English language learners learn the nuances of the English language, to challenge students to think "outside of the box", and to work on problem solving skills. They are also visually appealing so that the students can re-tell the Brain Busters to family members and friends once they have learned to answer and meaning behind each problem.
