Random Word/Student Picker - Classroom Tools

Well today is the day before April vacation in our school district. YEA! Yesterday I found a website (http://www.classtools.net/) that has some tools that would be wonderful to use with a projector/smartboard. Today, working with a fourth grade teacher I checked out the random number/word picker. We put her students names in and now she can randomly choose them! We talked about add a cooperative learning spin on it... think... pair.... then SPIN!
There are other great tools on the site as well that we will have to explore with a different blog.

How to use this tool in your room.
1. Go to http://www.classtools.net/
2. Scroll down to the random name picker template (first one under the games)
3. Input your class names.
4. Save (with little blue disk on bottom right) onto your desktop.
