THE coolest pointer ever! The hand lights up when you press a button and there are sound effects! Correct and incorrect answer noises. My Students love to be my teacher's helper so they can use this!
This is also a great tool to use during tantrums/meltdowns. I can often times get my kiddo's attention during instruction by pulling this sucker out! It's an instant hit. I don't use this every day at the same time... I don't want the novelty to wear off. Sometimes I use it during calendar, sometimes ELD, sometimes during small groups. It is effective because I use it inconsistently! This is probably the only inconsistent thing about my class! EVERYTHING else is routine based and schedule based. HAHAHA. I love my new toy :)
