Kahoot Time!! My students absolutely love hearing that. They usually quickly get out their computers and are logged into Kahoot in record time.
If you have never used Kahoot! before, you can create them for about anything. The registration is completely free. Click here to read my blog introduction to Kahoots. My husband even created one for my birthday to test our family’s knowledge! Our students absolutely love them and love competing against each other
The following Kahoots are ones that my 5th graders have used to assist with their fraction knowledge.
Least Common Denominator – This quick warm up was adapted from user SrR3ss and has 5 questions. Students play this game to quickly practice finding the least common denominator.
Simplifying Fractions – This game has 13 questions in which students practice simplifying fractions. Included is 10 math questions and 3 brain break questions. For example, “Who is this lovable Disney character?” Feel free to make a copy and delete these or add to them. This kahoot was adapted from user gretchenp.
Adding Fractions – This kahoot has 10 questions with 8 of them using math and 2 quick brain break questions. This was adapted from user petty415.
Adding and Subtracting Mixed Numbers – This kahoot was used as a review before our quiz. It contained 8 questions: 2 brain breaks, 2 word problems, 3 adding and subtracting with regrouping and 1 converting improper numbers to mixed numbers.
If you need a quick assessment tool or would just like to play a quick game, then Kahoot just may be for you. All you need is a mobile device (computer, tablet, phone) and your children and/or students will love it!
This Kahoot was designed by my husband for his 3rd grade class as an introduction to natural disasters.
The quiz features 8 questions with pictures of different disasters. The students have 20 seconds to select the name of the natural disaster in the picture. Some of the kids had never seen the disasters before and were amazed at the volcano and the tsunami. (Their definite favorites!)
His students used their Chromebooks and his partner across the hall used iPads. Both worked wonderfully.

For a couple of other awesome Kahoots!, check out these below…
This Kahoot was created by me as a practice game for my 5th graders. It uses their division, estimating, and multiplication skills. My students worked in pairs, but this could definitely be used for individual students. I also allowed my students to use white boards if they needed them.
You could also use this in different grades as a review or practice.
This Kahoot was created to help my 5th grade math students review place value with decimals. It was a warm up game and the students worked in pairs with ipads. It was my first time to creating one and the kids did great.

Kahoots are a great way to get students engaged and having fun in math or other subjects. On slideshare.net, I found this great picture that explains what a kahoot is pretty clearly.
Kahoot: an interactive quiz game for all subjects of learning. Teachers can create their own quiz by typing in questions relating to their topic or subject. The kids then use an ipad, computer, phone, or tablet to go http://kahoot.it . You can even create social games to play at a party. If you don’t want to create your own, but play one someone else created, you can do that also. They have thousands of public Kahoots ready to go. The game is highly addictive and engaging.
Kahoot gives each lesson a pin number when the game is started. The students type in the pin and they are automatically in the game. They compete against each other for higher points and can even compete against themselves in ghost mode. You can even have the kids type their names and download a score to put in your gradebook.
I have created several of these Kahoots for use in my math classes. I will post a few of these on a different post that is free to use in your class as a review or fun quiz for the kids.
