Playing Scoot and A New Unit... Frog and Toad Together

If you haven't played Scoot in your classroom, you need to!  I introduced this game to my firsties last week and they love it.  They loved it so much they are ready to play everyday!  How to play Scoot:  I taped task cards (we used the task cards from my "Class Pet" unit) onto their desks and numbered each card. Then we numbered our papers 1-10 and grabbed a buddy.  I positioned each pair of students at a desk with a card.  They wrote the answer by the corresponding number on their paper.  After a minute or two I said, "Scoot" and they moved to the next number.  Easy peasy and so engaging!  Take a look at them playing Scoot!

I  created new activities for the Scott Foresman Reading Street Unit 3 story, Frog and Toad Together.  You can get the whole unit HERE.
