Includes CD containing ready-to-go worksheets
A to Z Thinking Warm-ups provides teachers with fun, fast and easy-to-use alphabet activities that will engage and motivate students of all levels. The activities can easily be extended to develop creative and critical thinking skills, and incorporate multiple intelligences. They can be used individually or in pairs, groups or as a whole class to encourage collaborative and cooperative learning.
A to Z Thinking Warm-ups consists of two sections:
- Alphabet lists: theme-based activities, developed from Tony Ryan?s ?Thinking Keys?, for which students must list an item relating to that theme for each letter of the alphabet.
- Alphabet quizzes: lists of vocabulary questions in which each answer begins with a particular letter of the alphabet
- Each section also contains a list of suggested extension activities, in which students engage higher order thinking skills to use the lists they?ve made, or the new vocabulary they?ve learned, in creative and educationally beneficial ways. A teacher CD-ROM for Mac and PC is also included featuring all the activities in the book.
