Transforming Your Substitute Teaching Experience with Kahoot!

As a substitute teacher you're often stepping into a new classroom with students you don't know, and it can be challenging to keep them engaged and interested in what you're teaching. That's where Kahoot comes in!

Kahoot is a game-based learning platform that lets you create fun quizzes, surveys, and games that your students can play using their devices. It's a fantastic tool for keeping students engaged and interested in what you're teaching, and it's easy to use.

Here are some tips for using Kahoot as a substitute teacher:

  1. Plan ahead: Before you go into a new classroom, take some time to create a Kahoot quiz or game related to the subject you'll be teaching. Make sure it's something that will be fun and engaging for the students.

  2. Introduce Kahoot: When you first enter the classroom, introduce yourself and let the students know that you'll be using Kahoot during your lesson. Explain how it works and why it's fun and engaging.

  3. Let the students play: Once you've introduced Kahoot, give the students some time to play around with it on their devices. Let them explore the platform and get comfortable with how it works.

  4. Use Kahoot to teach: When it's time to start teaching, use Kahoot as a tool to reinforce what you're teaching. Ask questions related to the subject matter and use the game to help students remember key concepts.

  5. Make it a competition: One of the great things about Kahoot is that it can be used as a competitive game. Set up a leaderboard and let students compete against each other for the top spot. This can be a great motivator for students who might not be as interested in the subject matter.

Overall, Kahoot is a fantastic tool for substitute teachers. It's easy to use, fun, and engaging for students of all ages. With a little bit of planning and creativity, you can use Kahoot to make your lessons more memorable and enjoyable for everyone involved. So next time you're in a new classroom, consider giving Kahoot a try!
