Lately, I've been having some problems with attention, and I figured I needed to change things up a little. So I started thinking about ways to change the warm up activity. I thought of short readings with CCQs, or vocabulary exercises , and also just karaoke listening files and questions. I tried a .kfn file today about Canada and America, and it went over well in my 5th and 6th grade classes.
I know a warm up is supposed to be an entrance activity, but should it always be active? I was trying to use active activities over some others, and it became too routine: no fun anymore, and the class started on the wrong foot.
Is it okay to utilze core activities in a stripped back easier fashion as warm up activities?
What other ideas do people have?
Here's the .kfn file I made:
Here's a warm up reader I put together from the net yesterday:
