Resource: Flippity

Flippity has saved my life on more than a few occasions. This is an extension that works with Google Sheets to create different games and activities. For Spanish, I have found the matching, quiz show, and bingo games to be most effective. Bingo is especially fun if you have devices with touchscreens- NO MORE BACK... Continue Reading →

Resource: Acquainted

Easy, streamlined, FREE! This is similar to several polling sites, but you can customize the feedback based on the answer the student chooses! Great for reviews! As far as I can tell, the kiddos don't have to sign in- so you won't get individual feedback (it does gather information for the overall results). It might... Continue Reading →

Resource: Purpose Games

Purpose Games is another game-creator. It basically has similar elements to Wizer, but is a little quicker and simpler. Account creation is free, and the site has a user agreement that stipulates NO offensive material may be posted, so you can assume it's relatively safe. No Google connection, but school email was "pre-screened" and signing... Continue Reading →

Resource: Conjuguemos

This resource is specifically for language teachers! There are some free resources available, but the best features are paid for. The price is $45 per school + $5 per teacher. I emailed the host and he cut me a deal for $30 since I am paying out of pocket. Students can either make their own... Continue Reading →

Resource: Quizizz

This is best for individual review time. It is NOT like Kahoot in that students work at their own pace. You can project the leaderboard on the screen- but I didn't like how it showed a red bar that grew as students got more answers wrong! Students do have to join the quiz using a... Continue Reading →

Resource: Wizer

This is my new favorite thing. Wizer allows you to create interactive worksheets that self-grade. You can add as many different modules as you like to your worksheet, and it can be assigned through Google Classroom. The modules include things like matching, fill in the blank, tables/charts, labeling, video embeds, audio uploads, and more. Link... Continue Reading →

Resource: SchoolTube

YouTube, but without the junk. SchoolTube has taken the best of the educational web and condensed it into something useful. It obviously doesn't have as many options as YouTube, but at least everything on the site is high-quality.

App: Groovy Grader

Forget the old-school, cardboard, slidey thing all your 60 year old teachers used when you were a kid. ¬†Download the Groovy Grader App for free, and you can change the number of questions, and it will give you allllll the grades. One less thing you have to remember to bring home with you. Or to... Continue Reading →
