Notes
While these number choices
may not seem rigorous
enough for your grade level,
they were chosen specifically
so that you can spend time
ensuring that students
understand the directions and
procedures for each of these
routines!
This is the first day of this
routine for students that they
will be using all summer. Be
VERY explicit when setting
directions and procedures for
this time!

Fraction Scoot

Structure: Multiplication Scoot


Materials: Multiplication Scoot Cards and Recording Sheets
-

Students move from desk to desk around the room. At each desk, students will read the math
fact card and write the answer on the recording sheet. When the teacher says, SCOOT,
they move to the next desk. Students visit each desk in the room and answer all of the
question cards.

Structure: Circles and Dots


Materials: circle and dot cards (1 set per pair)
-

Students play in pairs.


Each student take turns putting down one card or flipping the top card from a shared deck.
Variation 1: whats the fact?
o Whoever says the fact fastest keeps the card
o For example, 3 circles with 2 dots in each circle would be 3 x 2
Variation 2: whats the product?
o Whoever says the product fastest keeps the card
o For example, 3 circles with 2 dots in each circle would be 6

If the students say the fact or product at the same time, the card goes into the We Got
It! pile
The game continues until the deck is finished.

Materials: None (except the teacher should think out the number sentences and the answer
beforehand)

Teacher asks students several addition and/or subtraction number sentences and see if
they can follow the sequence and find the answer.
Example #1
Teacher: OK, everyone-start at 4. Put the number 4 in your head. Add 6 [wait time], add 5
more [wait time], add 7 more [wait time]. Raise your hand silently if you know what
number Im on!
Example #2
Teacher: OK, everyone-start at the number 7. Put the number 7 in your head. Add 3 [wait
time], add 8 [wait time], subtract 2 [wait time]. What number am I on?
Teaching Tip: You may want to pick numbers that make ten or the next ten [20, 30, etc.]
