A 70-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. 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 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
- brain teasers
- code crackers
- writing prompts.
Students can write their answers in a warm-up journal, on their own individual dry erase board, or complete the activities collaboratively.
The activities in this teaching resource vary in complexity and in the time taken 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.
Common Core Curriculum alignment
Form and use prepositional phrases.
Use correct capitalization.
Use commas and quotation marks to mark direct speech and quotations from a text.
Spell grade-appropriate words correctly, consulting references as needed.
Use common, grade-appropriate Greek and Latin affixes and roots as clues to the meaning of a word (e.g., telegraph, photograph, autograph).
Explain major differences between poems, drama, and prose, and refer to the structural elements of poems (e.g., verse, rhythm, meter) and drama (e.g., casts of characters, settings, descriptions, dialogue, stage directions) when writing or speaking a...
Write opinion pieces on topics or texts, supporting a point of view with reasons and information.
Write routinely over extended time frames (time for research, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of discipline-specific tasks, purposes, and audiences.
Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.
Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences.
With guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, and editing. (Editing for conventions should demonstrate command of Language standards 1-3 up to and including grade 4 here.)
Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and draw lines of symmetry.
Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots. For example, from a line plot find and interpr...
Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangul...
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions ref...
