Scavenger Hunt!

Posted by on Feb 9, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I am excited to announce a new product. I made it to use with my class this Friday. I am thrilled to have it ready. We have done these scavenger hunts before and the kids really enjoy them. I put the cards in various locations around the classroom. Then the students on their own or paired with a partner walk around the room and stop at an unoccupied card to find an answer. This gets them up and moving, but still involved in learning.

Language Review Scavenger Hunt and Scoot Game

This product contains two complete games that incorporate movement into language skills practice.

We use Mentor Sentences as a daily routine to learn and reinforce various language skills. I have included a page with the 5 sentences, so that you could introduce them with this method if you wished.

With the Scavenger Hunt game I have the students complete it as part of a rotation during reading groups. I only have 4 or 5 students walking around with clipboards to locate the sentence cards and write their answers. Students needing extra support can be paired with a partner for this activity. I have also done similar activities with the whole class or as a filler for early finishers, especially if you made the cards a little bit tricky to find. My students enjoy this activity.

Scoot is a whole class activity. This time the students follow a route established by the teacher to collect all of the answers. For the Scoot game the answers are directly on the card. You can adjust the length of the game by the number of cards you have in your route. I have included a blank card in case you would like to add more questions.

These review activities cover a large number of important language arts topics: parts of speech, abbreviations, homophones, antonyms, using context clues, using commas, compound words, prefixes, and suffixes.

Thanks for stopping by!
