Calling on students

Yesterday, I decided on a new way to call on students.  We were practicing numbers, so I gave each student a telephone number from Spain.  (I picked mostly fast food restaurants.)  Then, I would read a pair of numbers.  Each pair came to the front and did a quick exchange of their birthday in Spanish.  It was great to continue to practice numbers in a new way.  Plus, it was interesting for students to see what a phone number would look like in Spain.  I would also add that I only teach 10 students.  If you have a larger class, you could call two to three pairs a class.  It would get tiresome to listen to 15 of these exchanges- at five, we were bordering on too long.  Do you use other ways to call on students that pertain to your unit?
