It's Day #5 of Guest Blog Week!
Please welcome Stephanie from The Learning Chambers and check out her game idea below!
Hi y'all! I'm super excited to be guest blogging today for Krista's "While the teacher's away, the blogger's will play!" week. My name is Stephanie, and I blog over at The Learning Chambers. This year was my first year as a Second Grade Dual Language teacher, so Krista's blog has been a new favorite of mine.
Now to get started on the post, and to share my game that I created especially for this weekly party. I hope you guys enjoy it!
To get started, you'll need to print out the coin cards and cut them out. Since it's the end of the school year, I decided to make the cards using black and white coin clipart to make it easier on your printer. I printed my cards on colored cardstock, but you could also print it on white cardstock and have your students color the coins. That would be a great way for them to review the different coins, and give them ownership of the game.
Next, you'll need to place one coin card on each student's desk and give each of your students a recording sheet. The students will start out at their own desk, and they will count and record the amount of coins on their recording sheet. If they have card #6, they will record the amount in box #6 on their recording sheet.
When you say "scoot," the students will move to the next desk over, and repeat the steps. The students will continue to switch desks until they have filled in their whole recording sheet.
I also included an answer key for this game, to help your students check their work. Sometimes I project the answer key onto my activboard to help them check their work, and other times I have them check their partner's work. I even use it as a quick check to see who needs to be retaught a concept in small group.
My kids also love when I let them create their own scoot games. I will give them each one index card, and ask them to write an amount on the card. Then I number them, and we play the scoot game again with a new recording sheet. This time the kids will look at the amount, and draw a group of coins that totals that amount on their recording sheet. I taught my kids to just draw a circle with the coin amount written in the middle to represent each coin. This is a little more challenging and differentiated, because different coins can equal that amount. You could even have the kids color, cut out, and glue on a set of coins onto the index card to play another similar scoot game. My kids have really enjoyed creating their own scoot games! Talk about creating ownership!
