I don’t know about you all, but I am already thinking about next year (A LOT!)! At the beginning of the year in first grade we spend a lot of time going over short vowels and CVC words. I am creating a series of CVC Scoot games for my students. I love Scoot games because they give kiddos the chance to get up and move around while practicing an important skill at the same time. It’s way more engaging than a traditional worksheet. I’ve got a whole series in the works – all of the short vowels and long vowels too! The first one is already posted at Teachers Pay Teachers and Teachers Notebook. It’s the short a edition.
The game includes enough Scoot cards to play with up to 30 students. I have included recording sheets for 20, 25, and 30 students. If you have less than 20 students, simply cross out the extra boxes. Arrows are also included to help guide your students to the seat they should scoot to next. Your class may not need to use the arrows after playing several times, but they do come in handy if your class is just playing Scoot for the first time. (Playing Scoot without practicing first could potentially be disastrous! I know from personal experience!) 😉 I included both color and black and white cards to use when playing.
Ooh! Short i is now available also!
In addition, I have posted my May SmartBoard calendar and a June/July one as well for those that may be teaching during those months.
Twelve more days of school left for me! The time has flown by this year!
