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 Group Names Classroom, Call On Student, Classroom Group Seats, Education Teaching Technology, Schools Ideas, Classroom Management, Classroom Ideas, Popsicles Sticks, Classroom Seats Ideas

At first glance this picture looks like a 1st grade math project. However the angles on it have alot to do with making a good movie. In order to keep and video from getting boring and dull a good camera man takes shots from different angles such as High shots, low shots, the list goes on but a movie with only one angle quickly becomes dull.
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!
Hands-on math statements. For the price of a box of craft sticks and some different colored permanent markers the possibilities are endless: spelling words, phonics, sight words, latin. Turn then lengthwise and use them for complete words to make your own a complete a sentence game. I love practical, flexible, and inexpensive!
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.
