What it is: Sign Up Genius is an easy-to-use site that makes it a snap to organize all of your classroom helpers and volunteers, parent teacher conferences, fundraisers, etc.  Quickly build custom sign up forms, invite the group, people sign up online and Sign Up Genius automatically sends email reminders.  Sign Up Genius has professionally designed graphical templates, tools for bulk email, email reminders for those who have signed up, email privacy settings, and even the ability to view statistics for sign up pages.  Sign Up Genius also has great Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest making sharing SO easy!

How to integrate Sign Up Genius into the classroom: Sign Up Genius is your one stop shop for organizing groups.  Use this handy tool to create Sign Ups for classroom volunteers, parent teacher conferences, fundraisers, class snacks, classroom parties, office hours, student presentations, special room use, etc.  Sign Up Genius could also be really useful for creating sign ups for coordinating online projects with other classes around the world.  My favorite feature: email or text reminders get automatically sent out so there is no need to keep track of everyone’s schedules…it is hard enough keeping track of your own anyway!

For older students, Sign Up Genius could be a useful tool for allowing them to sign up for class project/presentations, meeting hours with you, or coordinating their own clubs or group projects.

Tips: There are all kinds of great themes built in-all customizable to fit your needs!

What it is: Sign App Now is an amazing, simple way to create online sign up sheets.  This website is SO simple to use, you don’t even have to register to use it!  Create a sign up sheet by filling in the name of the sign up sheet, your email address, and your name.  Sign App Now creates a unique link (URL) that can be emailed to everyone that you would like to sign up.  Those who sign up just enter their name (no need for them to register either).  An email adding them to your sign up sheet is sent back to you.  That is it!

How to integrate Sign App Now into the classroom: Sign App Now is a great way to help you go paperless in your classroom.  Create sign up sheets for field trips, classroom volunteers, and in school duties or committees.  Sign App Now makes it simple to keep track of volunteers.

Tips: I love that Sign App Now requires NO registration from the creator of the sign up sheet and no registration for those who use it to sign up.  It is extremelly quick and easy to use.
