Warm-ups are a fantastic way to engage students, revise previous content and introduce new concepts. This bundle includes concepts aligned to the Australian Year Four curriculum and each concept features editable components so you can adjust them to suit your students' needs. This pack has slides that follow a rote learning style, e.g. identifying punctuation, and also slides that the whole class can complete on mini-whiteboards or in their books.


Note: Some slides may follow a similar structure to other year level warm-ups (such as high-frequency words), however, the content is completely different.
