Secondary ELA January Activities Round-Up

January is the beginning of a new year and also a great time to give your students a “reset” for their academic lives. Here are some great choices for starting off fresh!

New Year, New Student Bingo Challenge

With the New Year, New Student Bingo Challenge, you can get your students motivated to change old habits for the new year in a week-long challenge! Join my mailing list to get this resource for free! 

The Time You Have in Jelly Beans Activity + Bulletin Board

Another unique resource for the beginning of the new year is The Time You Have in Jelly Beans Activity + Bulletin Board. Use this resource in conjunction with the viral inspirational YouTube video “Your Time in Jelly Beans”! Students make predictions on how we spend our time in life before viewing the video, and then check how accurate their answers were after! Leads to insightful classroom discussion and also makes a great collaborative bulletin board!
