Today Mr. Sosa's third grade class used Kahoot! "Kahoot! empowers educators and captivates learners through the creation of a trusted learning space. Educational content is delivered by asking meaningful questions in real-time creating a social, fun and game-like environment." This program was used today with their Time For Kids magazines. Mr. Sosa made a Kahoot!, or intereactive quiz game, with questions and answers that can be found in the magazine word for word. The class was working on reading for information. Students read the magazine before the quiz game and were allowed to used the magazine as they searched for the answer. This also reinforced the use of text features in expository text to locate and find the answers.
