## Reflection: Joy Move & Match 3D - Section 2: Independent Practice

There are no worksheets involved in this activity. In fact, students don’t even sit down. It is important when young students learn new concepts that they get to move and walk with other students. Sometimes, as we think we are doing more intense instruction, we forget that our students are young and need movement, socialization, and joy. In a perfect world, this activity would be a warm up for an activity involving pencil and paper, which could be used as a sort of exit ticket for the day.
