This will be my first year teaching middle school reading (all 3 grades.) When I taught Comm Arts, my bell questions were usually writing prompts or D.O.L. type activities, which won't really work so well anymore. I know I'll definitely use them to work in vocabulary and as prompts to discuss whatever we end up reading (I'm still waiting to find out myself!) But I'm trying to come up with ideas for the first few weeks and when we are in between novels, etc. Does anyone have any ideas or resources? Thank you!
