Day 33: Popsicle Sticks


I’m really bad at calling on students at random. So today while students were taking a quiz, I wrote each of their names on Popsicle sticks. I wrote the period number on the other end of stick for easy identification.

The sticks will also come in handy for determining new random lab groups and seats. I change seats about every 2 weeks, but our SIS’s seating chart randomizer isn’t very random.

    classdojo is a free app that randomly picks students for you and also lets you track participation, behavior issues, coming to class prepared, on task during labs–you can make up the categories.
    Keeps the popsicle sticks from falling out of the cups 🙂
