Classroom Management

With less than a month left in the school year, student behavior can start to slip. One quick and easy way to regulate the noise level in your classroom is BouncyBalls.org!



  • Choose from plastic balls, emoji faces, bubbles, or eyeballs.
  • Project your screen so students can see.
  • Teach students that if the objects are jumping around on screen, the noise level is too high.
  • Adjust the acceptable volume level at any time.


It works best in Chrome or Firefox, and it's easy to use - just give the website permission to access your computer's microphone and you're ready to go!

  • ALL learning is Twitter-worthy! Send me pictures or invite me in!
  • Have your students created projects we can showcase on the Commons TV? Send it my way!
  • Want to learn more about integrating technology in the classroom? Let's schedule a meeting!
  • Planning an upcoming lesson you'd like help with? I'm happy to co-plan and co-teach!
