This is simple way to call on students when no one is volunteering! Kinda like popsicle sticks, but much more techy! Also has "group" setting Classroom Teaching, Teaching Technology, Technology Ideas, Student, Classroom Technology, Seats Charts, Names Generation, Classroom Management, Popsicles Sticks
Also on these boards
Management - After you call the student, place their popsicle stick on the outside of the roll. * If there was a student that you think you might want to call on again just place them back inside the roll. Now students won't know who you're going to call on. They'll just think you're putting all the names back into the cup! So brilliant!
I do this each year in my own classroom by giving each student 10 or 12 random hearts (they can swap if they want) and let students write their own Valentine letter based on their heart candies. Kids have loved it for 15 years. lmg
