Wheel of Names is not a new website but it is one that has been extremely useful the past year throughout the pandemic. I love this site because I can quickly create a wheel that includes my students’ names to use as a random name picker. When I have groups or partner work happening in class, I like to use this as a way to randomly select groups to volunteer responses or present their projects. The best part… students love it too!
