I’m sure many people have heard of Kahoot, but for those of you who haven’t, please allow me to introduce you to a rather brilliant teaching tool.
Kahoot is a collection of interactive quiz questions on a massive range of topics. I’m writing about it today because my topic for this week is poetry I love to use it for teaching poetry! It is great for revising poem content and key poetic terms. You can make your own quiz or look for a quiz which has already been created to save time. More often than not you can find what you are looking for. Even if you use a quiz someone else has created it is fully editable so you still have the power to adapt it to suit the needs of your class.
Once you have your quiz ready, simply ask students to enter the quiz pin onto their devices or phones and you are ready to go. I haven’t met a student yet who doesn’t enjoy the competitiveness of this and I’ve used it for Year 7 right up to Year 13 (who were EXTREMELY competitive!)
It really is simple to use and a fantastic addition to your classroom toolkit. Note there are no affiliate links in this blog, I just want to share this with you because it has helped me and my students so much! It helps to create a social and fun learning environment.
