Mystery of the Iced Tea Bell Ringer

Here’s a quick bell ringer/brain teaser you can open up class with since it’s still 80* in October. 

Prior to introducing the riddle, work in some PQA with the following questions:

  • “Do you drink iced tea?”
  • “Does anyone else in your family drink it?”
  • “Do you drink iced tea only when it’s hot out or year round?
  • “Do you like lemon in your iced tea?”
  • “Do you drink sweet tea or unsweetened tea?”
  • “If you don’t like to drink tea when it’s hot, what do you drink instead?”

In just this quick warm-up, we get reps on all of the following:

  • months and seasons
  • names of places
  • family vocabulary
  • structures such as “instead of” or “in place of”
  • “with” or “without”

    • Thank you for your kind words, Pamela. I’m glad that you’re finding my resources useful.

  • Hello! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!
