Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Math Centers - Reviewing Addition - Section 2: Introducing Centers

I started with a different paper for the Domino Addition Center.  The paper had more spaces for answers, but it did not give a separate place for the student to draw the dots and write the number sentence.  The student in the picture was working nicely on this paper, but the rest of her table was struggling and kept reverting to playing with the dominoes because they were frustrated.  Even after it was explained several times, they still were struggling with how to complete the paper.  I decided to look for a different resource for this center and found the one that is included on this plan.  The new paper worked much better and I had less students off task because they understood and were able to complete the center.

Adjustments to Practice: Changing Centers That Are Not Working

Math Centers - Reviewing Addition

Unit 8: Addition
Lesson 11 of 21

Big Idea: In order to pull small groups during math instruction, the rest of the students need engaging activities that they can complete independently. These centers allow students to practice a variety of math skills including addition.
