## Reflection: Classroom Setup Scoot for the Missing Parts of 8 - Section 3: Independent Practice

Scoot is new to my classroom this year and I am still working on how to manage space and movement during the game.  I love trying new games and lessons, it keeps me on my toes and the students interested. The first time we played Scoot, I sat the cards out on their desk and had them rotate through the room, from desk to desk, to solve their problems.  But many of my students could not remember where they had been and needed to go or they needed extra time to work a problem and others were ready for the space. This time I moved the game to the hallway, in hopes it would be more organized and they could rotate in a circle. The issue still lies in the kids need their own individual time to solve each problem and space. Take a bucket of unifix cubes to the hallway for any students who may find more success with objects. Also, be prepared to stop early.  There is no rule that every problem has to be solved by every student.  It is great differentiation to allow the same student who solved 10 problems successfully to be done at the same time as another student who solved 5 successfully. Scoot is fun, but have patience and plan ahead.

## Big Idea: I want my students to develop fluency in subtraction and get them ready for future standards like 1.NBT.6, double digit subtraction. This can be done by providing them multiple opportunities to problem solve.
