#1 Classroom Screen
This website is free to use and has SO MANY amazing tools. I used this website for virtual, hybrid, and in person instruction! Features include timers, random name generator, noise volume images and tracker, clock, drawing, text boxes, dice, and more!
#2 Bouncy Balls
I love to use this website during small group time so that students can self monitor the sound level in the classroom. When you first introduce the website, allow the students to get silly with it. Challenge them to get loud and challenge them to see how still they can get the balls to be. This will help to keep your class clown from wanting to test it out in the future.
If your school has this installed into students' devices, USE IT! You can easily see every students’ screen and monitor their activity. Love being able to have eyes on every student and every screen at the same time!
Many schools use ClassDojo for behavior management because it is a quick and easy way to give students positive or negative points, while sharing information with their families and even has messaging for teacher/parent contact.
Honestly, this website was a saving grace for me during virtual learning. Students join from their own device and their participation in the lesson is even calculated for you, you can include open ended questions, multiple choice, and even drawing responses. The grading was automated which saved me so much time, and my favorite feature was that the lessons could be teacher led or self paced! Perfect when you have an absent student who needs to make up an activity, or you want to quickly create individual work for your class.
