Random Word/Student Picker - Classroom Tools

Well today is the day before April vacation in our school district. YEA! Yesterday I found a website ( 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
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.
