This year, we all need the joy and festive spirits of the holiday season more than ever. To help you share some magic with your students, colleagues, families and friends no matter where they are, we at Kahoot! Academy have prepared a holiday calendar with new kahoots and surprises revealed every day throughout December.
While creating this calendar, we got some amazing, fun and heartwarming contributions from our educator community, in addition to festive content from partners. Now, we’ve asked some of the most creative contributors about their planned activities to engage their students this month – read on and get inspired!
Foster positivity and boost morale
ESL teacher Brendan Timlin, based in the Czech Republic, believes that positivity and good morale are most important during these last few weeks of the year:
“I really want my students to leave every lesson in a great mood. We connect virtually through doing exercise, playing games, and just having a laugh! One special activity I’d like to pinpoint is discussing what we are grateful for. It really boosts the morale in the lesson and motivates students. We focus on intrinsic values, like taking a poll with meaningful questions like, ‘Is it better to give than to receive?’ or ‘Are holidays all about presents?’
