Scoot for Words With Multiple Meanings
One word can have many different meanings in our language. Knowing which meaning a word uses in a sentence is critical for comprehension. This scoot activity gives your students practice in figuring out exactly which meaning a word has in a sentence.
Included in this product:
Two sets of scoot questions to provide practice with multiple meanings in different ways. Each set has 24 cards.
Set 1: Students choose the definition that matches the word as it is used in a sentence.
Set 2: Students choose the sentence in which the underlined word matches the given definition.
If your students have never played Scoot, it’s a fun, fast-paced classroom game that students love to play! It’s perfect for an end-of-unit review, a rainy-day recess, or even just to get the wiggles out! But if you prefer, these questions make great task cards for a word work center.
To play, put a Scoot question on each student’s desk, along with a number card. Students stand at their desks, record the answer to the question on their recording sheet and at the signal of “Scoot!” they rotate to the next desk to answer the new question. Complete directions for playing Scoot are included.
These activities support Common Core Standards L.4.4a & L.3.4a. They’ll also work well for second graders who need a challenge or fifth graders who need remediation.
