Do you want all of your bell ringers written for the entire school year for your biology class? Then this resource is for you! This bundle includes all of my biology bell ringers for an entire year of teaching high school biology. Each day comes with 3-5 editable questions that are an excellent way to check in with each student on a daily basis in a quick and effective manner, and my favorite way to start class smoothly and effectively. I call them Prime Times because I believe the first five minutes of class are the most important – setting the tone for the rest of the period. Don’t use bell ringers? These 210 days of assessments can be used as daily quizzes or exit slips too!
