## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Addition Strategies - Section 4: Closing/Summarizing

I like to use student journals as a close out to lessons.  This gives them the opportunity to write about what they have learned and it gives me a quick check to see if they have grasped the concept.  Research has shown that when students can write about what they have learned, that gives them opportunity to make a concrete connection to their understanding.
