What educators are saying

My students have enjoyed working on this resource. I love listening to the discussions the groups have. We have practiced letting others have a turn to speak which has helped wonderfully.
I tweaked this to use as a recurring class lesson on participating in a discussion. My students love the topics and I love that there is not a "correct" answer.

    Description

    Put some meaningful morning work into your daily routine with these "Top 3 List" activities! Get students discussing engaging topics, creating lists, defending their choices, and analyzing their own and others' decisions.

    It's a great way to warm-up students' brains and get the morning started in a fun yet purposeful way.

    This BUNDLE includes the following 3 resources:

    Each of the three sets provide you with 10 week-long "Top 3 List" topics in a slideshow format (PDF and PowerPoint included) for you to project onto your classroom screen or whiteboard. That's a total of 30 topics for 30 weeks. For example, What are your top 3 favorite recess activities? For each day of the week, students will complete a different task/prompt for that week's topic using their weekly record sheet provided.

    **Click on each resource within the bundle to see topic lists for each set.**

    On Monday, they brainstorm ideas with neighbors and create their own Top 3 List. On Tuesday, they defend their #1 answer with a detailed explanation. On Wednesday, they might compare their #2 and #3 answers or expand their list to a fourth answer. On Thursday, students might be asked to pair up with a neighbor, share each other's list, and negotiate to create a new Top 3 list together. And on Friday, the topic is extended in a fun and unique way.

    Here are the specifics on what's included in EACH of the three sets within this bundle:

    • The Slideshow (in both PowerPoint and PDF format) with ten Top-3 List topics, each with five separate slides (one for each day)
    • The same slideshow in a printer-friendly version (in case you can't project the slideshow)
    • Record Sheets (one for each of the ten topics) for students to record their responses throughout the week
    • Teacher Notes to help you get started

    **PLEASE NOTE Before Purchase: This resource is NOT editable.
