Scoot is a fun-filled game that gets your kiddos up and moving around the room while reviewing important skills and concepts! My kids love it so much that the room bubbles over with excitement whenever they hear we're going to play it! It's easy to prep and is also great for whenever you have a substitute.
I made this game for up to 30 students. I included two different answer sheets for either up to 25 students or 30 students (depending on how large your class is).
How to Play:
Prior to starting, the kids arrange their desks in a circle/square around the room. The teacher takes the Scoot cards and places one on each student's desktop in order (cards are numbered 1-30 in the top corner). If you have fewer than 30 students, you do not need to put all 30 cards around the room. If a student is absent, do not place a card on their desk. There should be one card for each student present during the math lesson.
Each student receives an answer recording sheet with the same number of boxes as there are student desks. They begin by sitting at their own desk. When the teacher gives the signal, students flip over the flashcard and solve the problem, writing the answer on their answer sheets *in the box that corresponds with the number on the top of their card.* When you yell "SCOOT" (I usually look to see when they’re wrapping it up without waiting too long), they flip the card back over and move to next problem/desk.
Once everyone has gone to each desk and had a chance to answer each question, you can end the game and review the answers they wrote on their charts.
NOTE: You can ask kids to order these numbers from least to greatest, or from greatest to least!
This game is great for:
Kindergarten (once your kiddos are familiar with 2-digit numbers)
