I started using Plickers in my kindergarten classroom last year. My students LOVE it and I quickly realized how amazing this FREE resource is.
Can kindergarten students really use Plickers and have the data be accurate? The answer is YES!! I went from assessing one on one to group assessing. I realized quickly that my data was just as accurate. That meant a huge change in the amount of time I was using to assess. The best part was I found that I could spend more time teaching and less time assessing using Plickers.
I did have to teach my students how to use Plickers and check for accuracy. It only took about a week to get every student in my classroom answering practice question with 100% accuracy. I added the directions for creating the practice question in this packet.
This packet includes direction/tips for setting up and suing Plickers in your classroom. There are 61 ready to upload picture files for assessing number recognition.
