Do your students cheer when you announce a test? I didn’t think so. My students DO cheer when I announce we are going to “SCOOT!” This kind of assessment gets students up and moving, allows kids to work at their own pace, and gives the teacher a chance to quickly spot and provide remediation.
This scoot has 30 cards to review contractions and possessives including possessive pronouns and the dreaded IT’S/ITS and THEIR/THEY’RE.
There are three answer sheets for your students to use: Quick Answer, Use Me in a Sentence, and What I Mean to Say. Answer keys are provided for Quick Answer and What I Mean to Say.
1. Quick Answer: You may have students simply decide if a card shows a possessive or contraction and record their choice in the scoot box.
2. Use Me in a Sentence: Students can write a sentence showing understanding of the word and its usage in context. This student sheet provides space for 15 sentences.
3. What I Mean to Say: Students may use the box to write out the meaning of the contraction or possessive (for example “does not” or “belonging to the dog”) to show understanding.
