Reflection: Intervention and Extension Constructing a House Plan Day 1 - Section 4: Student Practice


Some students have a difficult time with spatial visulaization and fine motor skills. Drawing a straight line is especially difficult, as well as counting the correct number of squares. These students benefit greatly when given a ruler. Also, I show them how to check off squares to keep track of the dimensions: Student Checking Off Squares. Sometimes students count the corners of each square instead of the side lengths of each square. For this reason, I teach students to place hash marks in the middle of each side of each square counted.
