One of my favorite word is Jambalaya - "A Cajun dish of rice with shrimp, chicken, sausage, meats, and vegetables; ‘huge concoctions of gumbo and jambalaya’" – a mix of anything and everything. Between this set of bell ringers plus my Lagniappe ones I cover almost the whole spectrum in 50+ questions each. Plus there is even set sheet of blank ones for your own questions. Add to that my set of LaGumbo questions you have a year's worth of bell ringers.
I have always loved Jambalaya and the little mixture I give my students. Around the beginning of school, Christmas time, Mardi Gras, Easter, the end of school I could always give them "a mix of Louisiana flavor" or EXTRA CREDIT so to speak.
I have enjoyed offering a little taste of Jambalaya to my students and offering them a chance to earn daily extra credit. The answers are generally very simple, earning them one extra credit point per day – which is not much, but of the course of a week/nine weeks/the school year – it DOES add up
It keeps me current in all things Louisiana history trying to know all the answers they can give me. There is no need for them to use a textbook, cheat, talk to each other because the questions are SO EASY for the most part. Even the hard ones give them so much play/latitude to answer almost anything that they think of.
Jambalaya is just another way to entice your students without over burdening them.
