I've read several posts about the Scoot game and I can't wait to use it. I'd like to come up with different sets of cards. Anyone interested in posting review sets specific to third grade? I'm planning to put together an addition review, subtraction review, contraction, and plural set. I can attach them to a post when I finish.
I do the same thing. I print the questions out on cardstock and will tape it to the desks. Then the kids get the blank answer sheet from my first post. They'll carry that around as they move from desk to desk.
Thank you so much for sharing the Scoot cards! If you add question numbers to the task cards that unseen001 has shared, they could be used to. (To find unseen's cards, go up to Search, type in Task). Thanks, ma!
I've used the task cards for my SCOOT questions. If you number them in the corner with a vis-a-vis marker you can remove the number afterwards. I also printed my SCOOT boards on card stock and then laminated it. The kids mark their answers using a dry erase marker. When we go over the answers, the kids erase the squares they got wrong. They can count up what's left to see how many they got right.
My students absolutely love this "game". I love it because it's so easy to set up, it's a great quick review, and it gets the students up out of their seats for a few minutes.
Everytime I get that message, I've found that my file was too big. When I saved the file as a PDF, it would become acceptable. I don't know if this is your problem or not but it might be worth checking out. I'd like to see the list you're trying to post.
I love the concept of Scoot, but I was wondering how you handle kids that work at a slower pace and may become upset about moving if they are not finished with a question. Do you give them the opportunity to go back to a missed question?
There was an another post earlier where that was discussed. I don't remember which board it was on.
Some of the suggestions were to have the kids stand with their backs when they finish to let you know for sure whose done. Another suggestion was to have them go on when time was called, use colored pencils when checking, and call that student later for small group work to see what could be done to help. It was suggested to have everyone progress through the cards as usual and let the slower student go back and finish his/her work afterwards to allow more time. I have the students bring a book or work on a clipboard, sit on the floor, and work or read until time to move to the next card.
I put a small ball of sticky-tack on the back of each one (they are numbered 1-20). Either I place the cards around the room or I let the students place them (doors, walls, sides of desks. computers, etc). They travel with their SCOOT paper, cover sheet, and a pencil. I play music which signals movement to a new task card. When every child has found a card, they sit and look at me. Then, I pause the music- which signals them to look at the card and write their answer in the correct space that matches the number of the card. When they are done, they look at me again. I start the music and repeat this process. It is very organized. They kids LOVE it!!!! I have found music on you tube that is cool such as "Hawaii Five-O theme," "Mission Impossible theme," and the "Pink Panther theme." Any kind of music will do. I started with the desk idea and that worked well, also. I just love the idea of music and the movement though.
