Do you remember in elementary school when your teacher would pull a popsicle stick out of a jar at random with a student’s name on it? And that was the student who was chosen to read their story or feed the goldfish or go to recess first?
Well, I still use popsicle sticks in my high school classroom. After all, it’s still the most fair way to decide which student is chosen! But, of course, being the owner of a blog called TeachBytes, I had to amp up my strategy to the 21st century. So… without further ado…. the Random Name Generator.
- Create a title for your class or group of students
- Set up a password to access your group again (aka you don’t have to input the names every time you want to use it!)
- Input up to 100 student names
- Use the arrows to pull up a new student in random order
- Refresh the screen for a new order
Plus, you can present the names in a no-frills, visually-appealing way:
Happy popsicle-upgrade, y’all!
