Kah-Who? Kahoot!

Recently, I found a super cool website called Kahoot! 
First of all, it's FREE! Nothing is better than free! =]
It's a quiz tool for any subject imaginable. There are quizzes already created by Kahoot! users and you can create your own quizzes. 

My kids love it because it is a major competition. 
For each correct answer, you can earn up to 1,000 points. You can get points based on the speed of your answer and if you are correct when you answer.
After each round, the score comes up and it is easy to see who is in the lead. 

One of the things that I love is that at the end of the game, the teacher can download a spread sheet showing who knows what. 
If you forget to download the results right away, you can pull them up later on. 

Each kiddo needs a device that connects to the internet to play. If you don't have enough technology for each kid to have their own device, students could easily play in teams or pairs. 
This is NOT an app. Just a website. 

This site is perfect for early finishers and transitions. 

It gets intense in the Resource Nook!
