Scoot is an amazing fast-paced game to help students review prior skills in an entertaining way. All you need are copies, desks, and pencils to be ready to play!
How do you play?
I like to arrange my desks in a square or circle before beginning. Place a task card on each desk that is being used, including "brain breaks" if you have more than 27 students in your class. Provide each student an answer sheet and inform students which direction they will be scooting (left, right, clockwise, counter clockwise).
Students begin when you tell them to begin. After about a 30 seconds (less if you notice everyone has finished earlier) yell "SCOOT!" Students take their answer sheet with them to the next desk and continue until they return to their original desk. During a "brain break" you can choose what you want your students to do -- I usually have mine draw a picture or stand up and stretch.
It's that simple! The students don't even realize they're practicing skills while they're playing!!

All vertical cards, all horizontal cards, or a mixed up version for students who have mastered both ways to add!
Each version includes 24 game cards and 4 brain break cards.
