Lucky You! Blog Hop

Who says Friday the 13th is unlucky? SO excited to team up with 20 AMAZING upper grade bloggers for a Lucky You! Blog Hop!!
It seems like we've been doing fractions FOREVER and I'm ready to be done and move on! But I want to make sure my students understand the many concepts we covered during this unit so I created a Spring Fraction Review Scoot game.

So what is Scoot? It's a fast-paced review strategy. Place a numbered task card on each desk. Give students a certain amount of time: students will move from desk to desk, reading the task card and answering it on their recording sheet. If they are at number 1 task card, then they answer in the number 1 box. When the teacher calls,  “Scoot!”,  they move to the next desk with task card,  and so on.
Tried and true words of experience:  Have class practice moving from desk to desk before doing the actual game. Be sure they understand the traffic pattern so they do not run into each other or skip cards. Do this a couple of times. Call out,  “Scoot!” and they move to the next number. The game is supposed to move quickly, but gauge the pace on your students.

And the luckiest news of all: Spring Fraction Review Scoot  is FREE during this Blog Hop! Be sure to grab your copy here! After March 15th, it goes back up to full price!

  4. Ohhhhh, so that's what a SCOOT is! I've been seeing that word all over the blogger/TPT universe, but have never found out exactly what it is, or bothered to find out. Thanks for the explanation! I see a SCOOT in my class' future. : )
