Sixteen weeks of warm ups/bell ringers/class starters for ELAR classes (second semester). Combine with first semester to get whole year of warm ups. (Purposefully omitted two weeks from the semester for benchmarks/testing days.) Can be used for 6th-9th grades (can go higher or lower depending on class level). Works well in a Writer's Workshop classroom with Interactive Journals. Monday - Journal Entry prompt. Tuesday - Revise/Edit sentences or short literary analysis. Wednesday - Brain Teaser to promote creative thinking. Thursday - Journal Entry prompt. Friday - analysis of quote from history. Free item is only the first week of the set. If you buy both available sets, you will have 32 weeks of warm ups, instructions on how to use, and a worksheet to adapt for use in classrooms that do not use interactive journals (students turn in a weekly warm up sheet instead of completing the warm ups as a journal entry). This presentation is purposely fairly plain so as to be gender-neutral and limit any visuals that students may find distracting.
