I heard about Quizlet last summer and was eager to try it with my students this year. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s definitely worth checking out. Basically, it’s an online flashcard program that allows you to create your own flashcards and then use them to play games. There are also assessment options. As a bonus, everything you create is printable too. It’s not just for vocabulary either.
I used Quizlet for the first time in October to help my students study for our social studies unit test. They enjoyed playing the games and were really engaged while we used our classroom projector to study as a class. A few of them logged on from home too. I love it when that happens!
Unfortunately, I sort of forgot about Quizlet and haven’t used it since. Oops. As I was updating our classroom website, I came across our Quizlet links and decided to use it again for our upcoming science unit test. It took me less than five minutes to type in our vocabulary words and definitions. I have games ready to go for tomorrow and an assessment for next week. I’ve already shared the link on our classroom Facebook page for home use as well. It really is that easy.
I’ve made it my goal to upload more flashcard sets ahead of time so they’ll be ready to go for our upcoming units. You can also browse from a ton of premade sets. I plan to use Quizlet more frequently in our room, and I think you’ll find many ways to use it too. Hop on over and check it out!
