Love this idea! Just what I need to start my class smoothly, especially in the morning when some kids arrive late or have just had PE and are a little crazy. I could adapt this for the younger ones by writing sentences they have to draw…
My high school Spanish teacher called the daily bellwork/entry task for her classes “La Campanada” (the ring of the bell), and I like the way it sounds, so I use it as well. The Campanada is a key component of my lesson plans because it helps with classroom management (students have a task to complete as soon as they enter the classroom) and it helps them access background knowledge and prepare for the day’s lesson.
- As students enter the room, they sit down at their seats and begin the task outlined on the Campanada (with some encouragement from me, of course!).
- As soon as the bell rings, I take attendance and then walk around the room with my seating chart and mark which students are satisfactorily completing the Campanada and which students are not.
- If they are not working on their Campanada, I mark a little X on the seating chart…

I got an idea from Julie N of putting up a tongue twister on the board (fully comprehensible of course) for the students to practise while waiting.
