Fractions and a freebie

Woohoo! It's FRIDAY! Fridays are wonderful in my room! We wrap up all that we've learned for the week and we have a little five minute dance par-tay at the end of the school day. The entire first grade lines up out in our hallway and we bust a move! 

This week was state testing week. My kiddos had a sub for two days while I administered the STAAR test. For those two days they also didn't have PE, Art, or Music, and the second day we had nasty weather so they had no recess. Needless to say, yesterday they were cray-cray. {dramatic pause} CRAY-CRAY! 

Well, we need to have a little fun and do something different so I'm trying my first ever scoot activity! How does it work? You put a card on each desk and spread the kids out. Students record their answers on the same number that is on their card. Ex: if a students has card 6 they record their answer on line #6. Students stay in their spot until you say "SCOOT!" Then they all move over one desk. We will be practicing the scoot part several times before we do the actual activity.

We've been learning about fractions for a little over a week so it was time for a new fraction activity anyway! If you decide to grab a copy I would love you to leave a comment, or for you to follow me on FB or Twitter!

I had also pinned this super cute fraction activity from Mrs. Ricca's Kindergarten! Go on and grab it and show her some love too!


  1. This is 1st grade??? Wow, I'm impressed. I think some of those questions are pretty difficult considering the level it was created for! I am pinning this for later. Thank you.

  2. Thanks for the fraction scoot! I am working on this right now with my kids. It will be a great practice for them

  3. I love how you have different levels of questions so that all students can feel successful no matter what level they are on. :)

  4. I love the scoot activity. I can't wait to try it. Thanks also for linking it to the other teacher's activity. Those are some great ideas.

  5. haha - you're so cute...scoot is so fun! Just remember, to PRACTICE before you do it, even with my 2nd graders, I have to practice EVERY time before we play the game.
    Thanks for the freebie, my friend!

  6. I love wrapping up everything on Fridays too and the feeling of starting fresh on Mondays! Thanks for sharing this super cute "Scoot" activity I know my kids will love it! I saw your super cute linky...I'm hoping you do it again soon because I can't wait to link up! Glad I found your blog!
