Spark Student Motivation: Quizlet


Happy Saturday! I think most everyone is back in school now and I hope you're getting settled and enjoying your new class!
 
I want to share a simple review game this week. Quizlet! Have you heard of it? It's so user friendly, so quick to set up, and easy it's a simple review game for a unit of study.
I use it a lot for a quick vocabulary review. It's the perfect five minute filler!
 
It creates flashcards too! It has an audio feature so the cards can be read aloud. This is going to beneficial for some of my struggling readers.
There's a test feature too! Students can practice with different types of questions: multiple choice, matching, written, and true/false.


Scatter is a game that requires some keyboarding skills because you have to type the matching word in the space bar before the matching word gets to the other side of the screen. I've played this whole group and just have my students all call out the word together.



Scatter is our favorite whole group game. The words disappear as you match them up. They try to beat the best time...lots of cheering!


 


I have my students say the words aloud as they match them, allowing for a review for everyone who isn't playing too.
 
Just a quick way to incorporate some technology, review, and fun all at one time! My students love Quizlet! I use the free version, which offers so much, but there is a paid teacher version I'm considering. You can set up your class and keep track of their progress, and it offers even more features.

 
I hope you had a wonderful week! Please link up any lessons, ideas, tips, tricks, incentives, ANYTHING you do get your students motivated or excited!

  1. This looks great! I have used Spelling City before, but really I am looking for something that is more about learning vocabulary so I will have to give this a whirl! Thanks! :)

  4. This looks like a great resource! Do you have individual devices that the students use independently, or do they just take turns on a computer? I have a SMART Board, but not too many other devices. Thanks for the linky!

  7. I've heard of quizlet but never really looked into it. Thanks for sharing it in such great detail. I'm going to have to check it out! Have you used it for other things besides review? I'm working if spelling word practice would be possible. I will have to just go play around with the program. I bet there are so many opportunities.
