One of the best ways I engaged my students were with prompts written on the board. Each day, my students would walk in the door and see the area with the prompt, challenge, or mission and knew they had to complete it in the first 5 minutes or complete it for homework. I would change it up so they would practice writing, listening, critical thinking, and more! Now, I recommend posting these challenges on your LCD projector or on a website. Below is an infographic I created filled with ideas on how you can engage your students within the first 5 minutes.
