Last week, we looked at some simple ice-breaker ideas for kicking off the school year. Now, we’ve gone beyond the basics and asked seasoned Kahoot!’ers to share their signature back-to-school tips. And guess what, the response from teachers of awesome was… awesome! Just look at all these creative ideas they came up with!
Play Kahoot! with parents – they can win a “No Homework” pass!
Steve Auslander, teacher at Allisonville Elementary School:
“First, after the first week of school, when we’ve sufficiently learned about each other (favorite food, vacations, bands, hobbies, etc.) we play a kahoot and have a friendly competition to see who knows their classmates the best.
Not only classmates, actually – once I created a kahoot to encourage my students to learn our cafeteria staff members’ names.
Also, I involve parents in back to school in a big way. At the end of the Back-to-school night, we play a kahoot summarizing my key points of the evening. The winning parent earns a free “No Homework” week pass for their child. Of course, I tell the students in advance, and it gets them to encourage their parents to attend the important parent event.
Here’s my Back-to-school night kahoot I made last year.”
