I love using warm-ups with my class. This coming year, I am using the warm-ups from my Weekly Science Warm-ups Bundle. Teaching 3 classes, starting off class with a warm-up helps to refocus the students, even if it’s just 3-4 minutes!
Here’s my plan of attack action!
I greet students when coming into the room. It will take some training, but they need to enter silently and look at the board. The board shows them what they need to have out. They take those things out and get started on their warm-up, which are kept in the classroom.
After students complete their warm-up, we can go over it briefly while I randomly choose students to answer various parts of the question of the day to help keep them accountable. I usually try to twist the question a bit and ask an additional question for students to respond to based on the warm-up.
Here’s the info on the bundle.
The bundle contains Part 1 and Part 2. I present the Upper Elementary Science Weekly Warm-ups Bundle!
