Learning Objectives

  • Be able to use Quizizz to practice and master vocabulary terms.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary Words:

  1. Rep/Repetition: Repetition is to continue to do something until you achieve mastery.

Pre-planning

To prepare for this lesson:

  • Identify the vocabulary words that are essential for a given topic (10-15 total).
     
  • Login into Quizizz (See the help center for questions as a teacher and create a quiz from scratch or teleport existing questions from the platform.
     
  • It is highly suggested that you add images to the questions to strengthen understanding.
     
  • Select “Live Game” and have students join the game (with a code, Google Classroom, link, etc).
     
  • Go to “Advanced Setting” and make any changes regarding memes, powerups, leaderboard, timers, etc.

Accommodations

Steps

Directions for this activity:

  1. Have all students access the live game that you created at Quizizz.
     
  2. Students answer questions at their own pace (material can/should be new to them, it is ok if they don’t know, just have them do their best)
     
  3. Note there is an option on the student end to have questions read aloud if that is appropriate for your age group.
     
  4. When everyone finishes highlight the stats about the most difficult question, time taken, etc.
     
  5. Then go to review mode and provide a quick, mini-lesson on the questions missed most often. Save time and don’t address questions with 95-100% accuracy.
     
  6. Select “Play Again” and have students play in live mode. See double-digit growth.
     
  7. Continue reps throughout the week. You can do it in live mode or release it in “homework mode” so students can play as “must-do” in centers or as an opening activity.

Bonus: Give this as a test at the end of the week and see amazing scores!

Assessment Options
