♦ Game of Scoot:
There are many ways to play Scoot, here’s one:
Lay cards around the classroom. I personally like to tack them to the walls – this way the cards do not fall to the floor and get lost in all the excitement. When the teacher calls ‘scoot’ students pick up/go to a card and write their response on the provided Recording Sheet. Students can only move when ‘scoot’ is called out. If the student does not finish solving the problem on a card, he/she can continue to spend more time on it, but must wait till the teacher calls out ‘scoot’.
→ You can also have this as a silent activity where students move around quietly solving all the task cards without the teacher calling out ‘scoot’.
