How do you teach tricky math? I think there are several ways and there's no right or wrong, you just need to do what works for you and your students.
My students like to be up and moving and playing games!
I introduced a Scoot Game a while back and now my kids want them for every concept!!!
The best thing about Scoot is that it can be used before, during and after your lesson!
Introduction (perfect opportunity to explain as you go).
Review (great to check for understanding of the lesson or before an assessment)
Assessment (use as a formative to check for understanding/mastery).
They move from desk to desk, recording their answers on their answer sheet.
If it's a tricky concept, they can work in partners, for an assessment, they can work individually.
Or you can use them as task cards for a center activity or small group lesson.
My best friend's son is in my class and told her all about Scoot. (Extra credit for him!) She hadn't heard of it, but was very excited to learn! She teaches 5th grade and wanted something exciting for her kids for a math lesson for her observation tomorrow, so I made her a scoot game for volume. :)
Here is my new Volume Scoot...
She's ready to go! She plans to use it as a formative assessment after her lesson!
Good Luck Amber (even though you don't need it!)!
It's a quick, easy way to check students' understanding and it little prep for teacher. Win-Win!!
I like Scoot because EVERYONE participates, it's a guarantee to have 100% engagement!
