What Are Warmup Activities?
Like every person needs a little morning workout and stretching to begin their day with optimal performance, language arts also needs some warmup activities for maximum learning. A school teacher always begins the day in a class with a few mental warmup activities so that students might be able to grasp the maximum out of each lecture throughout the day. Like our muscles, our brain also needs a morning warmup exercise session to understand the concepts.

Apart from that, learning arts warmup activities are also helpful in previewing the previous lectures give an account of what will be taught in the future.
