What are Bell Ringers and why use them?

Bellringers are activities that students do as they walk into class and wait for the bell to ring. They can help to improve classroom management, engage students, help students mentally prepare for the class, implement skill drills, and provide spiral review. Bellringers can also help to minimize classroom management issues while also helping to establish an effective classroom routine. [1]


Bellringers can help to improve student retention and engagement, as they provide students with a short assignment or assessment to do as they wait for the bell to ring. This can help to keep students focused and engaged in the material. Additionally, bellringers can help to review key concepts already taught, allowing students to review and reinforce the material. [2]


Finally, bellringers can help to provide a sense of predictability and routine for students, which can help to reduce stress and anxiety. This can help to create a more positive learning environment for students. [3]


Overall, bellringers can be a useful tool for English classes, as they can help to improve classroom management, engage students, review key concepts, and provide a sense of predictability and routine.
