Have I mentioned that I LOVE Google Apps For Education? We are a GAFE district and by the end of the school year, my 3rd graders were so proficient with creating/using Google stuff that I can email a link to them (or throw a goo.go up on the white board) and they can quickly and efficiently do whatever I need them to do. By making a super quick google form to gather info, I can quickly and efficiently gather all kinds of data!
How many times have you done this; "Raise your hand if...?" and then counted all the hands? Then the inevitable happens, "Ok, who didn't vote? I only counted ---- people. Ok, we have to do it again!"
Or had THAT kid who votes for ALL the choices? "Ugh, we have to vote again, because Eddie voted for everything!"

#3 Practice typing a short response
I need to give my 3rd graders as many opportunities to explain their thinking as I can. This type of short response is on our district benchmark assessments and also on the CAASPP. This is one of my favorite ways to use google forms! I can include an image from the text we are working on and ask them to respond to that image using evidence to support their answer (CCSS RL3.3, RL3.7)

I hope I gave you a few ideas for using Google Forms in your classroom!
