## Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Fraction Match-Up - Section 2: Activity

Students often race to finish or rush through activities and lose the real goal or objective if a lesson isn’t planned intentionally. My main objective for this lesson was to ensure that students could explain why the numbers and pictures matched, which is why I required them to write the sentence if they wanted the match to count. Without the written piece of this lesson, students may have missed the deeper thinking portion of the objective and the opportunity to justify their answers.
