Warming Up to Language Arts


Full Version Details

This is a PowerPoint presentation on steroids--a collection of 60 multimedia warm up activities for middle school language arts students, grades 5-9.  There are 5 activities for each of the following 12 skills:

  •    Correcting run on sentences
  •    Using sentence combining to eliminate short
             choppy sentences
  •    Turning sentence fragments into complete
             sentences
  •    Eliminating wordy sentences
  •    Correcting misspelled words
  •    Identifying synonyms and antonyms
  •    Using correct forms of words
  •    Solving analogies
  •    Adding capitalization where necessary
  •    Using correct punctuation
  •    Reordering sentences in paragraphs
  •    Writing paragraphs based on given topic
             sentences

The teacher displays a problem on the classroom TV, SMART Board, or on the projector screen.

Every problem contains a looping photo animation and a looping, classic rock, instrumental audio clip to engage students' attention.

The problem is visible and audible as students arrive.

After 3 to 5 minutes, the teacher shows the solution slide and conducts a brief discussion or explanation if necessary.

A detailed table of contents slide is included to assist in tracking the problems that have been displayed.  Fits nicely into lesson plans or serves as a corollary set of enrichment activities.

The majority of real-life public middle school students begin working as soon as they are seated.  When students have differing responses, they are eager to ask if their solutions are appropriate.  If a hand-written warmup appears on the classroom whiteboard, they want to know where their "regular warmup" is.

Compatible with PowerPoint 2007, 2003, and 2000.
