• A quick & easy Valentine's Day bellwork that a fellow teacher came up with today: Have your students name the celebrity he/she would most like to be their Valentine (but don't ask why) Then he followed up with a short history of Valentine's day.
  • Bellwork is a great way to get the students thinking about school or the topic of the day. Some ideas for bellworks are quick writes, D.O.L., or any short activity. There are many teachers that use this technique in there classroom, I have found several forums discussing Bellwork. Like this one: http://forums.atozteacherstuff.com/showthread.php?t=61727 I plan on using this technique every day in my classroom.~Amanda Merriman
