My new favourite classroom management tool

Bouncy Balls is my new favourite classroom management tool. And the best part? It’s free!!!

The balls respond to noise by bouncing up the screen. The louder the noise, the higher they bounce. There are five icon options including plastic balls, smiley faces, bubbles, and the slightly creepier eye balls!

During quiet work time I displayed this on the Interactive White Board and it was instantly effective. Students monitored their own volumes as well as those talking around them…it had a roll-on effect that was remarkable.

I will definitely be using this program in future teaching experiences.
