Directions

Easily display classroom directions, so students always know what they should be working on. Repeating yourself is history!



Music

Classroom music that provides the perfect soundtrack for any activity. Play classroom songs that helps students focus, or make free time a little more fun



Group Maker

A random group generator that helps you arrange students into pairs, threes, fours, or more. Group Maker is your new best friend.



Noise Meter

A noise level meter made just for your classroom. Show students the classroom noise visualized and encourage them to self-manage.



Think Pair Share

The perfect tool to do “think-pair-share” with your students. Post a prompt and have students turn and talk with a partner. Watch the discussion unfold



Random

A random student generator that helps you select a student, no popsicle sticks required. Use this student picker during a lesson or when you need a “volunteer”



Timer

An online timer that lets students know how much time they have left. Whether for transitions, centers, or something else, this classroom timer keeps things moving.



Today

Have morning work, a welcome message, or other announcements? Display these morning announcements as students walk in.
