Google Forms for Bell Work

Last year we went paperless in my classroom for everything except Bell Work. I tried a few different programs to put my Bell Work online, but to really make it work, the Bell Work was going to have to be multiple choice. Ick.

After attending the Google Summit in Texas this summer, I got the idea to put my Bell Work on a Google Form. It has been amazing.

Each day my students come in, grab a computer or iPad, sit down, and get to work. My students love the Google Forms and feel that they are more user-friendly.

I’ve found since moving my Bell Work to Google Forms, my students are taking more time to properly answer the questions, are giving more thought out answers, and are more excited to go over the Bell Work when everyone is finished. Plus, each student has a computer so we are spending much less class time transitioning from one activity to another.

Bell Work used to be a bit of a fight, something I constantly had to remind my students to do. However, since moving the Bell Work to Google Forms the beginning of my class is calm, enjoyable, and engaging.
