I wrote these warm ups to help me prepare my students for their end of the year state tests. These daily activities reinforce curriculum on a daily basis.
This product now comes as a PDF and an editable PowerPoint. The PDF is the 36 pages of warm ups I have created for you and 36 more pages of answer keys. The editable PowerPoint file also allows you to insert text boxes and create your own sentences/skill practice that you would like to review with your students. The editable pages use my pre-made warm ups template.
This is a 36 week set of weekly warm ups. Each page comes with the following: Vocabulary (analogy, synonym, antonym, homonym, context clue, or word part), Figurative Language (hyperbole, idiom, simile, metaphor, personification), sentence editing (quotation marks, proper nouns, commas in series, compound sentence, homonym, pronoun agreement, spelling, misplaced modifier, subject/verb agreement), sentence combining or joining (compound sentences, complex sentences, longer simple sentence), and a writing of the week (creative, explaining, describing, poetry, and more!). My seventh and eighth grade students do these every day at the start of class right after they finish copying down their homework. The warm ups don't take too long (just long enough for me to take roll) so we can get started on the main lesson. I also have them bring an independent reading book to class to read after they finish their warm up and other assignments.
If it isn't opening correctly in your edition of PowerPoint, then just delete that text and create new text with a font of your choice. Let me know if you have any questions. I am here to help : )
