SUPER TEACHER TOOLS
Sharing is caring!
Not all tools that are used in the classroom are solely student focused; there are many tools out there to help you in regular teaching situations!
SuperTeacherTools.us is one amongst many websites that offers several very handy tools for teachers. From a countdown to remind the students of the time they have left to finish the assignment, to a random group generator to take the fall when group formation is troublesome.
A similar but a bit more chaotic website is Classtools.net. Classtools also has some more ideas as regards to short quizzes, games, and posters.
By using these short tools in your lesson, you offer your students a nice break from the regular course of events. Apart from that, the tools truly help you as a teacher. It's easy to create a seating chart or set up a timer for an activity. You, as well as the students, are free to go about your own business until the tool reminds you to move on.
