"Openers"

I like to begin class with a short 5-10 min. assignment that the
students can work on independently the minute they enter the room. The
assignments need to have a minimum of supplies and be super easy to
clean-up. Sometimes I put up an object for them to draw. Sometimes a
step-by-step handout. Sometimes an imaginative idea such as "draw your
dream locker." I find it very helpful to have something for the students
to immediately do since they tend to arrive at various times within a 5
min.time span.

My problem is I need more ideas for openers. Does anyone else begin
class like this? Does anyone know of any books with short exersises to
reccommend? Also, I don't want to have to grade these --too time
consuming. But, I need to keep the students accountable. Any ideas?
