Week of warm ups/bell ringers/class starters for ELAR classes. 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. Total set includes 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.
