Why Dice and a Kitchen Timer?!  


In my classrooms we use dice for choosing students and offering a chance to get bonus points. See the post above for explanations.

The kitchen timer serves the function of a countdown clock- when the time is over, the bell rings and the activity is finished. Using this feature together with a points/reward system, the students are encouraged to think and speak more quickly. Sounds simple, but give the Hot Potato activity a go and you'll see how it works!
