Warmers and a comprehension strategy

A warmer is an activity at the start of the class to warm up the learners. They tend to be short, dynamic activities. They also work as anticipatory strategies to create a learning atmosphere and foster eagerness to learn more on the topic. Here are just a few examples that may be very easily prepared and  put into practice like games:
By the way, in case we don't know how to pronounce an English word, particularly a proper name, we may listen to the pronunciation of that word with this pronunciation dictionary.
In addition to that here is a so called "canned" strategy from SIOP that may be very useful to analyse different types of questions students must learn to ask in order to learn a given topic.
