Punctuation Scoot Game

How do you keep students engaged, motivated and excited about learning? This is something that all teachers spend countless hours trying to figure out. We write lessons, create activities and develop strategies that will help us reach our students and help them to learn. I find that games are an important part of instruction. They are interactive, engaging tools for enhancing learning. All ages of students like games. So, why use games in the classroom?

I also have a Freebie game you can download. Punctuation Pigs SCOOT is a game you play with the whole class. It is a fun whole group game that allows students to practice, review, or assess their knowledge of punctuation skills. My students have always loved SCOOT Games.

SCOOT games are very easy to play. Here is what you do:
  • Place a SCOOT card on each desk.
  • Students will start at their own desks.
  • They read the question or prompt on the card and write their answer in the correct space on their recording sheet.
  • At timed intervals have students SCOOT to the next desk and work that problem.
  • Students will continue until they have completed all answers on their recording sheet.
In this product, there are 24 cards which include 12 task cards for End Punctuation: Periods, Question Marks and Exclamation Points. There are also 12 task cards for Commas, Apostrophes and Quotation Marks. To play the game, students read the sentence on the card and decide what punctuation is needed in that sentence. Then they write it on the recording sheet. An answer key is provided at the end of the packet.
