I am completely obsessed with the idea of “Scoot Games.”Unfortunately, there’s a million and one ELA and Math Scoots, but virtually NO special ed/counseling Scoots. Go figure, right? Well, I’m going to try to fix that! Our kids deserve to have fun too!!
Here are the rules:
- Place one task card on each student desk or around the room in numerical order. It makes it easier for students is cards are put in order. Then, give each student a recording sheet and a pencil.
- Next, each student completes the card on their desk and writes their answer in the number on their recording sheet that corresponds to the number on the task card.
- After about a minute, the teacher says “Scoot” (or uses another signal) and the students quickly stand up, leave the card at their desk, take their recording sheet with them, and scoot over to the next seat with the next number and get started on the question right away.
I’m planning to make a bunch more social-emotional type scoot games as time goes on, but for now, check out my Bullying Game! It contains 35 different bullying task cards, which can be used as a way to review concepts in a fun, interactive way with kids in grades 2-6. Question formats include several types such as True/False, Multiple Choice, Fill-In-The-Blank, and Very Short-Answer.
Cards are presented in PDF format and are completely editable in Adobe Reader, so the wording and questions can be adjust to your student’s needs and ability levels! Scoot recording sheets are provided for several different class sizes (8, 12, 20, 30, and 35), so it can be played in a small group or full class!
