I do occasionally do timed activities, mainly as a prep for the timed tests such as the ACT or Workkeys. I have also found that the majority of my students like some competition. For example, when they are working in IXL I can put a live screen on the board that shows either how many questions they have answered correctly, or how much time they have been working. I was amazed to see some of my lower performing students continually looking to see where there name was and working really hard to get their name to the top. I don’t do this all the time they are in IXL, because I don’t want it to become something to focus on or stress about, but occasionally it does seem to help.
