|September Grade 5/6 Bell Work|
I had already created bell work for Grades 2, 3/4, 5, and 6, so I decided to take out the Grade 5 and 6 bell work and see which prompts I felt would work well for both grades, both in terms of curriculum expectations AND interest level. I always make September's work fairly easy, so that everyone is able to handle the tasks independently, and then increase the challenges as the year goes by. I took the same approach as I put together a year's work of Grade 5/6 bell work.
Each month's bell work fits on one double-sided sheet of paper; I usually print on coloured paper just to make it stand out more inside a student's desk, should it come loose from his/her notebook. I copy ALL 10 months the month before school starts, and file them by month. I keep the original sheets in page protectors within the file folders as well.
