Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Jellybeans!! Sorting, Graphing and Tally Marks - Section 2: Activity


I try to take advantage of special occasions and holidays to have my students do activities that allow them to practice and apply their mathematical knowledge.  I purposefully designed this lesson to be similar to the one that we did for Valentine's Day.  The students have a high level of comfort completing the lesson because they know what is expected of them.  It allows them to focus on the task at hand. 

There are so many Common Core standards that are covered in this lesson!  An activity like this really allows me to see what students area able to apply their knowledge and understanding of numbers.  The students completed the graphing activity with ease.  When we worked with the book, there was one student who struggled to count the jelly beans as a group of tens and ones.  I am concerned because this skill has been taught and reinforced many times.  I will need to provide extra practice for this student.  This is an essential skill!
