Promote the stuff and avoid the fluff with short, learning experiences and activities that engage students in significant ways with your lesson's content! Easy to design, tier, and implement, sponges and warm-ups have dramatic impact on student learning and lesson momentum. Sponges are inserted anywhere in a lesson in which there is a lull in momentum, such as when distributing supplies, cleaning up, waiting for classmates to finish, moving from one place to another, waiting in line, or when the server is down temporarily. Warm-up's can be done as "early bird" work to review material or prime the brain for new learning. Both are used to keep students accessing neural pathways with substantive content, thereby growing the dendrites needed for learning.  Leave no classroom moment unclaimed, and live up to what we know about effective education by using all the time given to us. Join us for a fun and practical workshop on using sponges and warm-ups to keep students engaged and learning!
