It's here! A full year of yearbook bell ringers
to get your staffers engaged, thinking, and involved right from the start of class!!
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, lessons, or exit tickets if you didn't want to use them as bell ringers.

- Monday Picture Inspiration
