This colorful file folder game allows students to practice identifying reading genres.
There are two versions of the game. Choose the one you want to use. I like to use a penny (heads-move one and tails-move two) because it is cheap and easy to store flat in the file folder. You can use a die, as well. This makes the game move along more quickly.
You may use just the task cards. A student recording sheet is included. Playing SCOOT with the task cards and recording sheet is also an option.
