Happy first Monday of 5th grade land.... said no one ever.
I found a years worth of bell ringers off of TeachersPayTeachers (click here to view) when I first started teaching. I've used them every year. I love how the bell ringers are broken up into categories:
Movie Clip Monday
Vocabulary in Context Tuesday
What if? Wednesday
Social Media Slip Up Thursday
Figurative Language Friday
This is my 4th year using this video. Every year the response is the same: silence. 5th grade land is apparently different than high school land. From this video, I was able to gather that they not only got the message that I wanted to convey, but one student found another message. After the clip, G immediately raised his hand and asked, "What about the potato salad? Did it get mashed?"
Turns out the thumbnail of the video is about potato salad.
The more I think about it, G really understood the message. He followed up with, "we can be potato salad friends - potato salad goes with everything."
