♥ I cannot even begin to explain how excited I am to use this in the fall. I have been doing daily grammar/punctuation bell ringers for four years, and even though they are effective, this takes bell ringers to a whole new level. My kids are even going to know what hit them with these awesome ideas. Thank you so much!
♥ The absolute BEST purchase I have made on TpT. This was so well put together, fun, and not a thing could have been added. This is going to make my life so much easier!
♥ These are amazing! My students absolutely love them! Teachers-BUY THE BUNDLE! You will get more than you could ever imagine!
♥ This is my first year using bell ringers and I can say that I wasn't sure if high school students would respond well to them and I was wrong. They absolutely do amazing things with the bell ringers. This is very eye appealing and the students love them. I teach 2 sets of reading so I bought the first and second one. Please keep making such wonderful resources.
♥ One of the best purchases I have made on tpt! Awesome, thank you!
