Have you ever played Scoot? It’s very easy to play, and I’ve created a version for you to use to review or preview place value relationships below.
If you’ve never heard of Scoot, here’s how you play:
- Give each child a recording sheet. They will keep their sheet and pencil with them during the game.
- Place a task card face down at each person’s seat.
- When you say “Go.” students turn over the card at their seat and write the answer on the appropriate square of their recording sheet.
- When you say “Scoot!” students move to the next seat (cards stay–kids move) and do the next problem.
At the end of the game, review answers.
Since I know we have a tough lesson Monday (renaming thousands as hundreds) I wanted to build my students’ number sense and sort of preview the concept, so I made this game:
My kids really enjoyed playing this game today and it seemed to help them understand renaming numbers a little more than they did before. That should really help next week when we do numerical representations and larger numbers. I hope you enjoy it!
