Product Swap!


MrsStanfordsClass
Is this not the coolest idea?! Jessica at Mrs. Stanford's Class put together this awesome swap. We are matched up with another blogger on the same grade level and get to pick one of their products to download, put together, and review. I got matched up with Jackie at Third Grade's A Charm. Be sure to check out her blog!






When I looked at her store I knew right away I wanted to tell you about her Scoot! game Combo Pack for Nouns. That was mostly because I had heard of Scoot, but had never seen the game and really didn't know what it was. Well, gotta tell you, I love this concept and am so looking forward to using it in my classroom. Jackie has a bunch of different Scoot packs in her store, so be sure you visit there.

The combo pack includes two different Scoot games, "Identifying & Writing Nouns" and "Classifying Nouns." I usually organize my materials in large manila envelopes; I started with the Identifying & Writing pack:

If you are like me and don't know the game, there are 25 question cards and an answer sheet. You place the cards in numerical order around the room. Students begin at their own seat and move on in numerical order, answering the questions. The teacher signals when to move (it's intended to be a short game). My first thought was that this would be a great warm-up game before teaching a lesson. I also thought about using it as bell work. One thing I love is that the cards come numbered and blank, so I could just have students move around there own table answering 4 - 5 questions.

 

Once the cards are laminated you can just use a paper cutter to cut the page into fourths, which makes for a simple prep.


Here's what they look like with a real live 3rd grader!

  1. Julie, thanks for the review! The video was great! I hope you and all your kiddos love the games!

    P.S. Love the idea of splitting up the cards and just rotating at their own table!

    1. I was so proud of her -- there was no coaching to actually speak; I just said I was going to do a little video of her working. That's my granddaughter!
