Have you Tried Kahoot?

Oh my goodness, I FINALLY tried Kahoot! What a blast! I think I had as much fun as the kiddos. If you've not tried Kahoot yet, you must! It's a game-based classroom response system that VERY easy to set up and implement in the classroom.

Once I got into Kahoot, I realized that I could easily create my own games or "duplicate" others and change a question or two if needed. There are ready-made Kahoots on thousands of subjects (just search for what you need).  I now have four Kahoots within little time, ready to play in the classroom.

Once you've created your game, you click LAUNCH, and it will provide the players with a GAME PIN. They type in this particular pin, add their name, and viola, they're in. It's time to play! Students can see what place they're in on their device.

Students are 100% engaged, and I could see how many missed each question. This is instant feedback for me on which concepts I need to go back and review.

Check out this video of my students playing Kahoot. I giggle when I hear the excitement and see kids jumping up and down while learning. Kahoot will definitely become a regular part of my classroom!
