No PREP: Print, project & teach!

155 daily activities or 31 weekly activities using introductory slides and 1/4 page task card practice quizzes are perfect for 5-10 minute Do Now or Exit Slip activities, Bell Ringers or literacy center ideas during any time of class. Pick and choose these no prep print and go activities to use every day or just 1-4 times a week. These materials can be seamlessly incorporated into your classroom needs. Use the practice quizzes daily to test student mastery or use the introductory slides and one quiz for two weekly activities.

I used this introductory PPT lesson then used and reused these practice quizzes and quizzes for daily challenging Do Nows in my high school special education classroom. I was amazed at the student enthusiasm and growth in vocabulary development. Teaching root words gives students the tools to fully understand word meaning, learn unfamiliar words, and increase reading level, while preparing for the SAT and ACT!
