8th grade Do Nows 8th grade Do Nows
During the first 5 minutes of each period the students are supposed to get their notebooks, sharpen their pencils and begin working on the Do Now assigned for that day.  Do Nows are also called Bell Ringers or Class Starters.

Do Nows are not glued into the notebook but are kept in the Hot Pocket to be used each class day.  On Friday, red pens are passed out to students and they grade their own paper.  Typically, with the date and questions there are 20-25 items to check.  Students are awarded 4-5 points for each check.  Then they turn in the paper for me to record in the grade book.

The first several weeks, I use the Language of Science paper, which is found in the Beginning of School section, for the Do Now.  Students are to answer 2 each day.

I have also converted all to pdfs because of printing problems.  That file is at the bottom of the page.
