Kahoot!

Is everyone out there doing Kahoots with their kids? My kids absolutely love them! We have been doing one each week when we have access to the school Chrome Books. I've even tried NOT doing one a couple weeks ago and the kids were a little upset with me!


I've made a few of my own and have been trying to base them on subjects we have been working on as a sort of post test to the unit. The best part is, if you didn't want to make your own, there are literally thousands to choose from that other teachers have made! The site is free to use. You just need to sign up for an account at kahoot.com. Then find a Kahoot you think your kids might enjoy (we did a Spongebob one last week just for fun) and click "play". After clicking your play option, "player or team" the site will give you a code for the kids to type into their Chrome Books at kahoot.it.
They pick a nickname for themselves (my kids think this is one of the best parts) and your ready to go! I use the overhead to show the question and answers on the board and read them allowed to the kids. The kids then click the corresponding box on their Chrome Book to the answer they think is right. After each question, it will show who the top 5 players are. I love this because it doesn't show who's in last. At the end it will list your top three players.


I have posted a picture of the games I have created so far if you would like to try any of them out. You can try clicking HERE to find them and if that doesn't work my username is "koriekiss" and you can just type that in the search bar. 

Feel free to link your username below if you have created some and would like to share :-) 

Until next time,

  1. That sounds really cool! Can they use iPads or does it have to be Chrome Books?

  2. I've been to a couple training's where they do a Kahoot and we all use our cellphones. I think any device would work.
