Our new favorite things....

Ok. Can't lie. We have a lot of favorite things...Converse shoes, puppies, Tervis', Destin Florida, little babies, rain boots, food, getting pedicures, our planners, a new package of card stock...the list could go on! But-today, right this moment, we will talk about our love for Kahoot's.

Have you heard of Kahoot? If not, listen up. It's cool, it's fun, it's interactive technology and kids love it. You can create your own interactive Kahoot or use one of the many already made Kahoot's.
After creating an account and logging in, click on quiz to start creating your own!

In order to use in the classroom you need to have access to computers, iPads, iPods, or some sort of device that has access to the internet. In our classrooms, we pair students into groups of 2 or 3 and have them create a team name using their names combined. For example: Lizz and Lesley would be LizzLey. It is so fun to see how creative their new names are and it doesn't take up a lot of time. Here are some examples of how creative names can get. (aubby=Audrey and Gabby)

The first time we introduced kahoot to our rooms we created a quiz that was short and easy so our students could get the hang of it. It had 5 questions all relating to our classroom. These were questions only my students would know the answer to so I made it a private quiz.

Once you have played around with the sight some, you will be a pro! It is an easy to use site and doesn't take long to navigate. The picture below shows the Kahoots created by me, the ones other people have created that I like, and ones that other teachers have shared with me.

 Be sure to play our end of the year math quiz~this is perfect for 4th grade! It is called End of Year Fun-Math Style .

Happy Kahoot~ing!
