Bell-Ringer Game: Each pair of students is given a set of flash cards. Timer is set for 2 or 3 minutes. Students take turns reading definitions and identifying the term that matches the definition. Cards are kept for correct answers and put back under the stack for incorrect answers. When the timer goes off the student with the most cards wins.
Homework Test Review: Ideal for struggling students that need help structuring their study routine. Provides parents with concrete activities that they can use to engage their students in review.
