CLASSROOM TIP: Engage Shy Students with Rubber Ducks! Here's How!

Many students are often reluctant to raise their hand when a teacher asks a question. For shy students, it's even harder to engage in classroom participation.

For teachers, it's often difficult to ensure that all students participate, but we've found a fun practice that can help, and it involves rubber ducks!

Some teachers are buying small rubber ducks and writing each student's name on one. The ducks are then placed in a bucket. When a teacher asks a question during a lesson, they pull a random duck and have the "lucky duck" student answer the question!

The practice is a great way to ensure every student gets called on, and it adds some levity to a busy school day.

Amazon offers a lot of mini rubber ducks that would be perfect for this! You can order the lot by clicking right here (or below).
