Have some fun comparing fractions with this fast paced review game! There are 24 questions to be placed on each desk and one answer sheet. The students "scoot" to each seat to answer the question on the answer sheet. Students LOVE this game!
If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I love your scoot answer sheet - very clean, and I love the graphics! The only thing missing is the numbers on each of the scoot cards. I ended up gluing them to cardstock for durability and just writing # 1-30 on the back of each of the cards. Thank you for a great product!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
I teach third grade. Do you give the children visuals or foldable pieces to help them determine which is greater? I know there's going to be a ton of fraction stuff on our state assessment this year. I don't know any tricks to help them figure out which is greater without some sort of manipulative. Of course, they can't use any manipulative on test day! GRRRR..
I had a variety of students last year when my class played this game. Some students traveled seat to seat with fraction bars. Some students were converting to common denominator. Some students were converting fractions to decimals and then comparing decimals. We had a mixture of ways to find the answer. You could easily leave fraction bars at each desk for students to use instead of traveling with them.
Place a card at each students desk. The student will have 10 seconds (however long you want) to answer the question on the answer sheet. After 10 seconds, call Scoot, and the students will scoot to the seat next to them to answer that question. The students will end up answering all of the questions without realizing they answered that many because they LOVE this game! Hope this helps :)

can you give me more details about the scoot game?
Also, I bought your fractions envision flipchart. wondering if you will eventually do one for all the units? I LOVE your flipchart!
I cut the questions into individual squares. I place the cards on the students' desk in numerical order. The cards stay on each desk. The students will have an answer sheet to record their answers and take the answer sheet to the next desk. I give the students less than a minute to answer the question, call scoot, and the students scoot to the next desk to answer the question.
I probably will not have anymore units like the FRACTION unit flipchart for Envision Series. I've moved from fourth grade to the library. Math is still my favorite thing to teach, so I plan on creating more things for math, but not an elaborate unit like the Fraction one.
I taught two years in fourth grade and loved every minute of it. I'm taking a new leap and jumping into the library! I'm very excited about this adventure! Be on the lookout for a lot of reading activities from K-5 :)
