You can also use it for vocabulary and, if you have a colored mouse, as a quick prop for a color sentence frame: “I have a ____ mouse.” Yes, this pertains to ESL online teaching, but a wireless mouse is more portable and doesn’t need to have its batteries changed very often. You do have to keep up with the USB for the bluetooth connection to your computer.
