## Reflection: Solving Addition Number Stories- Under the Sea - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson

After two lessons on just solving addition word problems with manipulatives, some of my advanced students were showing a lack on interest.  I got them more involved in the lesson in two ways.  I had some of the students come up and help me think of additional problems for the class, and I assigned other students as buddies for students who needed help.
