- Students quiz their partners by reading their cards, swapping cards, and continuing around the room to find a new partner.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding
A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your 3rd Grade Test Prep lessons.
In addition to individual student work time, use this review game to enhance learning through guided math and reading groups, whole class lessons, or remote learning assignments.
If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts:
🆘 Support Struggling Students
Help students who need help understanding the concepts by completing the cards in small-group or as a whole class review lesson. Additionally, provide access to previous assignments, as well as posters and anchor charts for students to recall past lessons.
➕ Alternate 2nd Grade Review Activities
🛴 Scoot Activity
Place the cards around the room numerically and give each student a recording sheet. Assign students or pairs to a starting point card. Give students time to review the card and record their answers in the corresponding space on their paper. Students will rotate to the next card when you say, “SCOOT!” Continue in this manner until students return to their starting point.
👋 Exit Ticket
Use these cards as a formative assessment after your lesson. Pick a random assortment of cards and project them on the board for the whole class to see. Students can record their answers on a sheet of paper, sticky note, or notebook.
