I created this plural nouns SCOOT! packet with differentiated small groups in mind, which is why there are several grade level standards listed. However, I know sometimes it is easier to play with a whole class. Therefore, there are several different answer board types for your use.
ELACCKL1:c. Form regular plural nouns orally by adding /s/ or /es/ (e.g., dog, dogs; wish, wishes) when speaking.
ELACC1L1c. Use singular and plural nouns with matching verbs in basic sentences (e.g., He hops; We hop).
ELACC2L1b. Form and use frequently occurring irregular plural nouns (e.g., feet, children, teeth, mice, fish).
ELACC3L1b. Form and use regular and irregular plural nouns.
Scoot!: How to Play
Scoot is a versatile game that can be played in a whole group or small group setting to review, practice, or introduce skills to students. In this particular game, students will be playing to review contractions. More specifically, students will take the singular noun/ word and write it in its correct plural form on the answer sheet.
Prep: -Cut out and laminate cards (only need one set)
-Copy 1 answer sheet for each student.
How to play:
-Give each student an answer board
-Place one card at each student’s desk
-Prior to play, decide whether you want students to get up and move to the next card, or you want the card to be passed. Personally, I have the students physically get up and move because of the fun kinesthetic aspect. Also, decide which order/ direction you want the students to move. Instruct student prior to play about how you want everything to move.
-Students begin with the card on in front of them. Read the sentence. Mentally make note of the underlined word, and write down the part of speech it is on the answer board.
- After a set amount of time, the teacher says, “SCOOT!” Students then move seats/ pass cards.
-At the end of the game, check the work. This can be done whole group, or on your own.
