Scoot is a popular game played in many elementary school classrooms. Easily adapted to any content area and grade level, Scoot makes for a welcome change from just completing a worksheet for skill practice. Additionally, the cards can be utilized as typical task cards.
This Scoot activity is designed to incorporate several Language Arts Skills: identifying parts of speech, types of sentences, sentence structures, and independent and dependent clauses.
Types of Sentences
To identify the type of sentence, students should read the item on the card then record whether the sentence is declarative, interrogative, exclamatory, or imperative.
To identify the sentence structure, students should read the item on the card then record whether the sentence is simple, compound, complex, or compound-complex.
Parts of Speech
To identify the part of speech, students should read the item on the card paying particular attention to the green word. They should identify the green word as either a noun, verb, adjective, or adverb.
Independent or Dependent Clauses
To identify the type of clause, students should read the item on the card paying particular attention to the italicized words. They should identify this group of words as either an independent clause or a dependent clause.
