Do you Kahoot?! My sweet friend, Hope, shared this website with me. I’m sure I’ve seen it before, but I must have forgotten about it! It’s a great way for students to interact with your lessons through quizzes, surveys, and discussions. I decided to give it a go to review counting coins this week. I made 20 questions (that have now been added to my It’s All The About Money unit!) and uploaded them into a Kahoot! My students absolutely LOVE it! They are asking to Kahoot all the time now 🙂
You can also just type in the questions… you don’t have to add images 🙂
Thankfully I have a few iPads and student computers, so I was able to put my students into groups of 2-3 so they could answer the questions. You do need some sort of device for them to answer on, or you could always use your phone and answer as a class 🙂
After our Kahoot, we played Spin and Total. I made four different coin spinners of various levels so I could differentiate with my class. This was also a class favorite! (This has been added to my money unit)
To top off our coin activities for the day, we made our Coin Pocket Books. This was a great way to bring down the level of excitement from the Kahoot and spinners, but still keep my students engaged while doing their independent work!
I love things like this because we covered more than one concept! We counted coins AND compared numbers… killing two birds with one stone!
I did add quite a few activities to my money unit, so if you have already purchased it, make sure you go and download the new version!
Hope you have a Happy Tuesday. It’s time for me to deck the halls and get my house all ready for Christmas… that’s totally happening tonight 🙂 Who cares if it’s only November 11th?!!
You know it’s May when you only have yellow and orange starbursts left 🤣🤣🤣. The temptation for me to eat them is officially gone... mostly because I finished up the red and pinks yesterday 🤷♀️. #yougetwhatyouget #sorrykids #betterlucknextyear ... See MoreSee Less
Do you ever need to justify what you are using in your classroom? We compiled this document so that teachers and administrators can know what Rooted in Reading is all about. We surveyed 500 teachers and received some incredible feedback! You can find that all here:
