I wanted to try something new for freshmen library orientation this year and got this awesome idea from Naomi Bates to use meme’s. Today I tried it for the first time and it was a huge success! I loved looking around the room and seeing kids smiling and laughing and more importantly paying attention! I used Imgflip and Meme Generator to make the memes.

I followed the slideshow with a game of Kahoot to see how well they paid attention. If you’ve never played Kahoot with students, they LOVE it! And there are lots of public Kahoots that you can use and even modify to customize it for your own lesson.
