An 82-slide PowerPoint presentation containing a variety of quick warm-up activities.
We all need a little more structure in our lives, and that even includes our students! Just like you, students have a hard time functioning when their learning environment lacks structure. So why not start every day with a daily warm-up to provide that structure and routine that all of our students crave!
This interactive PowerPoint contains 50 activities designed to be used as daily warm-up tasks.
Display an activity on your interactive whiteboard when students enter class each day.
- word of the day
- punctuation and capitalization
- sorting and ordering
- secret words
- mystery numbers.
Students can write their answers in a warm-up journal, on their own individual dry erase board, or have them complete the activities collaboratively.
The activities in this teaching resource vary in complexity and in the time needed to complete them. To ensure you don’t repeat an activity, change the heading to red or simply move completed slides to the end of the presentation.
