This product provides teachers with an entire school year of journal prompts in an organized and focused way. The journal is organized by month with 25 entries per section. Students will strengthen their writing and critical thinking skills with these unique, higher level thinking bell ringers.

There is now a digital component included in this resource. The graphic organizers and reading passages are now created in Google Slides. Link to digital access can be found in the 'Read First' PDF file.

We have included an EDITABLE version of the bell ringer journal to help fit each teacher's needs! You can edit any of the questions and/or headings in the journal.

This resource includes:

✏ Black & white AND color options available

✏ Teacher directions

✏ Cover pages for each of the months

✏ Tabs to keep students organized throughout the year

✏ Zero prep. Simply print and distribute.

✏ 275 unique bell ringer prompts

✏ Proofreading

✏ Photo response

✏ Timely events based on month

I have also provided a PowerPoint version for the teacher to display. Instead of the different days all on the page for children to write, each question has its own PowerPoint slide. The teacher will present the prompt for the day and then students will respond in personal journals.

I have teamed up with The Super Hero Teacher to create this product. She has Grades 3-5 and middle/high school grades, too available in her store.
