With state standardized testing quickly approaching, I wanted to share one of my favorite ways to review skills: Kahoot! This is a fun, interactive game that my students LOVE to play!

In order to play you must have access to electronic devices (iphones, ipads, kindles, etc). When you set up an account online you can search through thousands of already created Kahoots or create your own. You can find premade Kahoots on just about every subject/skill! You also have the option of previewing the Kahoot before trying it with your students.

Now that we know how to select a Kahoot... let's learn how to PLAY!

Once you have picked a Kahoot, select the PLAY button next to it. That will bring up a screen similar to the one above. It will provide the game pin. Students should go to kahoot.it on their devices to enter the game pin. They will then be prompted to create a nickname. Once all students have logged in, select START to begin the game!

Above is an example of what the game will look like to you and your students. On the left, is an example of a question that will be displayed on your SmartBoard. The picture on the right shows what the students will see in order to select their answers. There may be a timer such as the purple circle on the left. Once all students have answered or the timer runs out, the correct answer will be revealed. You'll be able to see how many students picked each answer, which is definitely good information for you! The leaderboard with the top scores will also be displayed between each question. That feature is highly motivating to students! It is also nice that it doesn't rank all of the students (unless it's a small group), so no one gets embarrassed by a low score. Having unidentifiable nicknames also helps keep student anonymity.

Most of the quizzes are multiple choice; however, a new game option is now available called Jumble! In this version, students are required to put the answers in the correct sequence instead of just selecting the correct answer. I have not tried this option yet but am definitely excited about it!

That's the basics about Kahoot. It's very easy to set up and play. Plus it is a fun learning game that involves ALL students!

What are you waiting for? It's time to have fun and play Kahoot!!
