Over the weekend I came across this website that I thought I would pass along.  It’s called a Random Name Generator, (http://www.superteachertools.com/instantclassroom/random-name-generator.php) but it actually does a lot more. Teachers can create an account, put in their class lists, and use the website to:

2) Create random groups:  The site takes your class lists and randomly groups them together.  You tell it the number you would like to have per group.

3) Seating Chart: Let’s face it, JMC (our current SMS) is pretty ugly.  I have seats in pods now, and JMC just doesn’t work for me like that.  It isn’t the greatest, but it does let me move the desks around the way I want.  You can print them – – and even add photos so that you could print a photo seating chart for a sub.  Simple and not flashy, but do-able.
