To Play Scoot

  1. Place a task card at each student’s desk.  Each student receives a scoot page.
  2. Students begin with the task card at their desk and are given 30 seconds (or an amount of time that works for your students.)
  3. When the time is up, the teacher says “Scoot” and the children move to their left.
  4. This continues until all of the task cards have been completed.

Scoot gets kids up and moving but can be difficult because children are given the same amount of time for every problem. If you are looking for an alternative, try using this as a write the room activity.

To Use as a Write the Room Activity

  1. Tape cards around the room. You might even give your students a little challenge by making a few tricky to find.
  2. Students are given a recording page.
  3. They go on a “hunt” for each problem. This can be done in any order and at any pace.
  4. Students solve each problem and record the answers.

This game can be a great way to get your students up and moving.
