Hello! I'm just getting some ideas together for bell work since I don't have any of my curriculum yet, and that's very stressful being a first year teacher. (I'll be teaching 6th.) This website has a lot of ideas in several different subjects though. Hope it helps!

I would recommend going to mindware.com and purchasing some problem solving and logic books. Perplexers, Sequencers, and Logic Links are wonderful and the puzzles are different levels. My students beg to do activities from these books.

I use something called Focus Lessons which is a district mandated thing. It's worksheets that target specific state standards, and I try to pick Focus Lessons that go along with thing we are learning in class.

You could do something similar by going over to edhelper.com and printing worksheets. They have membership fee, but it is WAY worth it.

The first semester, we use Drops in the Bucket from Frog Publications for L.A. and math. It has 10 questions for each, then we grade it.

The second semester, we use Flashbacks. Our Curriculum Coach makes them and they become a daily review of previously taught state standards. She usually has 4 or 5 L.A. and math questions, then 2 or 3 science, social studies, and Practical Living (health) questions.

I usually do a critical thinking/logic puzzle. (I've gotten lots from www.ebookdestination.com - search "puzzles" and you can buy, download and print). Sometimes I do minute math (but my students need more than a minute!) or a short reading comprehension.

Mountain math and mountain LA are great to try. Or to keep it simple, just have them work in their handwriting books or write in a journal.

Caught'Ya Grammar with a Giggle

I use Caught'Yas as my bellwork. The book is written by Jane Bell Kiester. It's a great starter to class. The kids have to correct sentences that I have on the board. Each sentence builds on the previous sentence to make a story.

I love caught ya's! they can function as a fun editing bellwork.I use them as my whole grammar lesson! there are many components and you can go in depth for an hour or "hit the tip" for 15 minutes, perfect for bellwork! Edhelper...I agree it is SOOOOOOOOOO worth it.you can choose a short bellwork from any subject.

I have a frog theme, so I think I will call bell work "pond work." I am accepting other ideas!!!!

I ordered the drops in the bucket from Frog Publications and I am really excited about them. I can't wait to see other ideas on this board.

I don't give a whole lot of time for morning work. I like to start teaching (writing workshop) within the first 10 minutes of the day. My kids decide what they're going to work on in writing, so that they're ready for the status of the class. Then they can either work in their writing folders or read until I call them for WW.

Bell Work Idea

If you go to Education World dot com and search for quotes of the day, they have a quote for every school day. Sometimes I pick and choose to get past really difficult ones. I gave students journals and they would have to do a few things. First - date and quote number, next write the quote and the author. Thirdly, write down what the quote really means - real life meaning (be kind to strangers, give time not gifts, be a good listener), and lastly write down how they can relate (make a connection). But you have to decide - what do you do if students are away? Do they do the quote they missed? I marked it on completion and commented on quality. Some come up with poor connections - so to model what a good connection is, not to rush through and make a deep understanding to the quote. If they don't know the meaning of the quote, I would explain it, and then leave the connection up to them.
