Kahoot is a competitive, real-time review game integrated with GrammarFlip's content whereby a teacher or parent can lead students through a series of questions. Accurate and timely responses earn students points on a leaderboard. It's easy to use, and students love it.
Links to Kahoot games with GrammarFlip's content can be found next to each of the lessons:
(Note: You, the teacher, will need to register a free Kahoot account to access the review games.)
With Kahoot, essentially you are the facilitator of a review game that you can project to your classroom monitor/TV as students play along. Students log in to the specific game using a game PIN that you will provide them, and then they answer questions in a competitive environment against a timer and are awarded points on a scoring leaderboard.
To get started with GrammarFlip's Kahoot integration, simply follow these directions:
1. Make sure your computer screen is projected to a classroom monitor/TV which can be viewed clearly by all of your students (they must be able to see the monitor/TV in order to play). Click on one of the Kahoot links in the right-hand margin of the Lessons page, and then choose either the "Classic" or "Team" mode to load the review game.
2. Once the game is loaded you'll be provided a "Game PIN" at the top of the screen. Give your students this Game PIN, and then send them to the website https://kahoot.it to enter the Game PIN (alternatively, they can click the Kahoot icon in the upper-right corner of their GrammarFlip student dashboard). You'll see student names begin to appear on your dashboard, and once they are all there, you're ready to begin!
3. Lead the students through the series of questions which they'll answer using their devices (laptop, tablet, smart phone).
4. Brace yourself; your students will go crazy - they love playing this game!
What's great about Kahoot is that after each question, you'll see as a whole how the class answered each question. If most of the class answers a question correctly, you know that they understand the material; if most of the class answers a question incorrectly, you can pause right there and then to review the concept or to clarify any questions the students have.
