What do you do for bellringers/do nows when the students walk in the room? I focus on mechanics, usage, and grammar, as well as commonly confused/misspelled words on Mondays through Wednesdays. On Thursdays and Fridays, I typically show CNN Student News and have a brief group discussion. My students always seem to enjoy talking about current events. I am looking forward to hearing about your ideas as I plan for the beginning of the year!
