⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆ School teacher and mother LOVES this! This app is great! I create a list with all of my students' names to randomly call on someone. At home, I created a list of all the songs that my son needs to practice on the piano. Both my kids and students love it! Also, this app is SUPER user and kid friendly! ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆ (Customer review)
Whenever you need to choose a random name… or number… or word… Random Name Picker is the fun way to do it! Teachers – choose a random student for questions, privileges, anything – better than drawing straws. Office teams can choose a random team member for the month. Parents can choose a random chore for the week.
Random Name Picker remembers where you left off each time and allows you to continue where you left off, choosing a new random name each session from those who have not yet been selected. Or if you want to start from scratch and throw everyone into the mix you can do so.
Random Name Picker has 36 fun game themes including Pinball, Music, Golf, Cookies, Ping Pong, Sushi, Billiards, Pancakes, Bowling, Bubbles, Popcorn, Donuts, Monsters, Balloons, Fish, Bugs, Crabs, Rockets, Robots, Gumballs, Sports, the Beach and more! There are also nine seasonal themes: Apples, Pumpkins, Fall Leaves, Snowflakes, Snowmen, Hearts, Shamrocks, Rain and Flowers.
Players can watch in suspense as their name stays in the running – or is eliminated – until the final random name is left. Choosing the random name is part of the fun – a great attention-getting device. And you can adjust the speed so that your random name is selected very quickly… or you can draw out the suspense and fun by slowing it down.
You can also use Random Name Picker to choose a random answer or review term for students to identify: how about creating a list with the numbers "9" "12" "18" "21" "24" – and asking students to identify factors for the chosen number? Or how about creating a list with "triangle" "square" "rectangle" "rhombus" "pentagon" "parallelogram" – and asking students to identify a property of the selected polygon?
Example: "Who can answer this question about our reading text? I'm going to call on this student… (sports balls with class names on them are kicked away until only the name "Ethan" is left) …Ethan!"
Example: "I want you to think of two factors for the number 12. Now I'm going to call on… (balloons with class names pop one at a time until only the name "Madison" is left) …Madison!"
Example: "If this student is sitting nicely, he/she will be my helper… It's… (fish with class names are caught one at a time until only the name "Aidan" is left) …Aidan!"
Example: "Look at the words that are on the screen and think about which ones are nouns and which are verbs… Here's the final word… (pop corn kernals, some with nouns and some with verbs, pop one at a time until only the word "car" is left) …CAR. Noun or verb? Tell your partner how you know."
You can add as many groups of words or numbers as you want to the Random Name Picker. How about a list of…
