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?!!
