It's Tuesday - and here is a quick tech tool for you. Google Forms are so easy to use and incredibly versatile!
First, here are two links and experts to get you started if you've not explored GF much—or even if you've used GF a bunch, you'll find something new to learn! These ladies have tons of ideas for using Google Forms in more ways than you can even imagine!
Look at Shake It Up Learning with Kasey Bell and Teacher Tech with Alice Keeler.
Now, here are just a few ways I've used Google Forms:
Below is a little form for "peeps" to try out if you'd like!
Can you add some ways you've found Google Forms to be useful in the classroom? Please comment below so we can all learn new uses for this tech tool.
Today I offer you a slice of I'VE NEVERs. It's merely a simple list of things I've never done that can be turned into a game. This fun slice comes to you thanks to Mary Ann and Linda - and can be used as a classroom game, too!
Check out Linda B's post to learn how she uses this, and click here to see Mary Ann's nevers.
Here is how it's done:
Each player receives five (or three if there's less time) toothpicks. Each time the player HAS done the shared action, she or he must forfeit a toothpick. The one person—or you can choose to have three people—who still has at least one toothpick would be the winner(s)! Alternatively, you can time it and those with the most toothpicks left after a specified amount of time are the winners.
Please comment and play along - it'll be fun!
Comment below to tell if you lost any toothpicks (if you HAVE mown the lawn, HAVE competed in sporting events, HAVE done any of the other things I've never done) - and be sure to try this format on your own slice!
This SOL was inspired by Michelle Deblois over at Write 4 Today. She wrote six six-word memoirs. Phenomenal concept that I'd love to try with students - thanks for the idea, Michelle!
Spring Break—balancing recharging with adventure
Spring skiing with no lift lines
Spring thaws send swift water downriver
Spring kayaking sends shivers up spines
Spring westward to view mountain sunsets
Spring flowers offer glimpses of rebirth.
