More Math Please:)

I use Drops in the Bucket and Math 4 Today (Frank Shafer) with my 5th graders. We do level for math across the grade level. I have the low average to average group. These books work great for reviewing skills every day. Both programs have a variety of skills (place value, basic facts, measurements, story problems, fractions...).
Sometimes I cut the pages into strips for a quick review. I also use the sheets for homework. The sheets can be done independently or as a small group.
Next year, I want to play "Scoot" with the pages. I will cut the page apart and put a different problem on each desk. The students will move around the room to complete all the problems (time limit of courseuse a bell to signal when you scoot to the next problem). I will give them the complete page as a record sheet. Then, we will check the problems together at the end. Again, I may cut the page in half so the game will be shorter.
