I’ve been feeling under the weather lately with a wisdom toothache and it is most unpleasant as I find it hard to concentrate and eat. That’s why I haven’t been posting up anything new lately.
Thank God for his blessings, I am feeling much better. So, I would like to share about what I’m doing to improve my students’ knowledge on recognising notes on the piano keyboard. Since the beginning of the semester, I have been quite limited by the time and materials that I can use for my Secondary Music lessons. I knew that Kahoot was a good platform to use as an interactive lesson strategy but in the past month, I realised it’s full potential when I explored more. You can create lessons with your Kahoot by putting in videos or flip classroom style. I have so much good things to tell about Kahoot and I felt that the only downside of it is that you need two devices at a time to use Kahoot. I guess that can be easily overcome as most people have more than one device nowadays. It works well on computers, Androids and even Apple devices.
My Year 7s have trouble learning about the piano keyboard and staff lately. I partially blame myself for it but they really liked Kahoot when I first introduced it. So I tried my hand on creating a Kahoot lesson on this topic.

Below is a preview of how my Kahoot looks like.
Please give it a try! Feedbacks are always great!
