Spanish Bell Ringers

I use a quick Bell Ringer (Bell Work)  at the beginning of every period to get the kids started with Spanish as soon as they enter the room. If they have homework, the teacher can check the homework while students are working.  I then go over the answers to the bell ringer, and then we go over the homework before we start the new day’s lessons. It’s best if the bell ringer is short and quick. They should be related to the last day’s vocabulary or grammar concept, or give the students a chance to use their notes.

I handout a sheet where the students write the date and the answers to that day’s bellringers. Or you can have students dedicate a section of their notebook. You can choose to collect this at the end of the week and grade it if you choose.

Some other teachers have call their Bellringers or Bell Work: “Caliente su mente” “La Campañita” “TocaTimbre” “Para Empezar”
