Inevitably, your students come to class distracted – thinking about emails and texts they have to answer, tasks they have to complete, friend issues, and the game after school. If you want your group’s full attention, one great idea is to start your class with a bell ringer - a mental exercise that’s both enjoyable and calls on as much of your students’ brainpower as possible.
These bell ringers, designed specifically for yearbook, take just a few minutes but will be very powerful in building crucial skills throughout the year and get class started on the right foot! They could even be used as individual activities or lessons if you didn't want to use them as bell ringers.
20 activities are included for each day of the week – That equals 100 days worth of mini lessons!
- Monday Picture Inspiration
- Tuesday Problem-Solving Scenarios (based on real events!)
- Wednesday Evaluating Bad Pictures
- Thursday Brain Teasers
- Daily Oral Language
- 5 editable PPT files
