Typing Competition Online Typing Competition You can create your own typing contest with 10FastFingers.com, just create or login to your account, select the typing language you wish to type in and you can create a typing championship that will last for 24 hours. The test works the same as the typing test, it runs for one minute and the faster you type, the higher your score and therefore the higher you will rank on the tournament highscore list. There is one important difference though: Once you created the competition the words will stay the same, so the more often you do the competition, the better your score will get. You can repeat the competition as often as you like, only your best result will count, so if one of your friends just beat your amazin result, try again and take back the first place.

5 Random Name Generators: The Modern Day Popsicle Sticks – TeachBytes Do you remember in elementary school when your teacher would pull a popsicle stick out of a jar at random with a student’s name on it? And that was the student who was chosen to read their story or feed the goldfish or go to recess first? Well, I still used popsicle sticks in my high school classroom. After all, it’s still the most fair way to decide which student is chosen! But, of course, being the owner of a blog called TeachBytes, I had to amp up my strategy to the 21st century.
