An 80-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.
